Sprague's Pipit


Illustration of the Sprague's Pipit The Sprague's Pipit was considered to be a "status undetermined" species in the 1991 review of the Status of Alberta Wildlife. The species was recently updated to the Blue List of species that current information suggests may be at risk in the province. This designation was made on the basis of rapidly declining populations, and a lack of research into the biology and management of the species. The Sprague's Pipit is legally designated as a non-game animal under the Alberta Wildlife Act. Such species are provided with full protection, and cannot be killed, possessed, bought or sold without a permit.
