Over the past two years, Conservation Action Plans have been developed for both the wintering grounds in South America and southern Central America, and the breeding grounds in Canada and the USA. Thank you to guest blogger Tina-Louise Rossit and Blair Scott for contributing this species spotlight. Nature Canada established the Canada Warbler International Conservation Initiative website as a public face for the initiative. Other factors believed to impact breeding grounds include certain forestry practices, forest fragmentation from roads and other infrastructure like the seismic lines in Northern Alberta, habitat desiccation from land draining in the south, and climate change – especially in the north.

Canada Warbler (Cardellina canadensis) is a small forest songbird. Common nest materials include moss, leaf litter, and roots. Furthermore, these issues impact all three habitat ranges of the Canada Warbler, so these little guys don’t even have a chance to recuperate their numbers.

Canada’s wilderness is the world’s envy. 0000001037 00000 n In some parts of its breeding range, the high density of White-tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus),  results in the overgrazing of the warbler’s preferred forest habitat, reducing the shrub layers they are dependent on. Life span: Relatively unknown; maximum recorded age was almost eight-years old. Researchers are also connecting the dots between breeding grounds and wintering areas through the deployment of micro tracking devices such as geolocators. Canada Warbler International Conservation Initiative—Nature Canada Species at Risk Registry (SARA) Despite this burgeoning freedom, they remain dependent on their parents for another two to three weeks. 0000042472 00000 n ad�>����;o>M��aNa+t����E��R���l�k����A���{ʖ���Jh|��.�i*���~TW`�_�J=Y�'#U�4��+�cP�R�:yiT��E��!s��\��K�.OO,���Њ@t���MR�xg�Ǵ'��n�4�w���R5�L�>�(is�s>��W�=�t(�=F������i�Ю*"�qh���-R�5$=�7��i�%*��B��ʬm��b���w��;� t�b��ԳW��һ���h��z�ny1Wgo���+'g���YC���_Zy����6�&���P��RϢœ�w��~��ELqq7��{�Ľ+���!N�(h߄S�ȇC1Sp���*�^A�[��!���Y׾���$��u�C�E#����W�T��TL�8�Gv Join the Nature Canada online community today for campaign updates, advocacy opportunities, and more. 0000001916 00000 n For this reason, Canada has a major responsibility for the conservation of this species. 0000068155 00000 n See.

However, this warbler also faces problems during its migration and in its wintering habitats in the South American Andes, so conservation efforts need to operate on an international scale. For instance, purchase shade-grown coffee and organic chocolate products. Shade-grown crops are planted under forest canopies which respect the habitat requirements of wildlife, like the Canada Warbler. Purchase coffee that is shade-grown, fair-trade, organic, and ideally certified bird-friendly to support the Canada Warbler and many other species of birds and other wildlife. These effort will help direct the limited conservation resources where there are most needed.
