Conservation Summary

  • Portugal
    Pouco preocupante (lc) (Source: Livro Vermelho dos Vertebrados de Portugal)
    Pouco Preocupante
  • Canada
    Vulnerable (N3) (Source: NatureServe)
  • North Carolina, US
    Significantly Rare: Any species which has not been listed by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission as an Endangered, Threatened, or Special Concern species, but which exists in the state (or recently occurred in the state) in small numbers and has been determined by the N.C. Natural Heritage Program to need monitoring. (This is a N.C. Natural Heritage Program designation.) Significantly Rare species include "peripheral" species, whereby North Carolina lies at the periphery of the species' range (such as Hermit Thrush), as well as species of historical occurrence with some likelihood of re-discovery in the state. Species considered extirpated in the state, with little likelihood of re-discovery, are given no N.C. Status (unless already listed by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission as E, T, or SC).
