General Notes

The North American population of this species has decreased by 68% in the forty years spanning 1966 to 2006, according to a recent analysis of Christmas Bird Count records conducted by National Audubon Society scientists. Although there is insufficient data about this species to be highly confident in the actual magnitude of the population decline, the trend is considered statistically significant.
