As part of the recently released 2014 State of the Birds Report the is listed as one of the common birds in steep decline. The report identifies 33 species that do not meet the Watch List criteria but are declining rapidly in many areas.

These birds have lost more than half their global population, and the 33 species combined have lost hundreds of millions of breeding individuals in just the past 40 years. Check out my latest West Coast Beat Writer post for more information on this interesting bird.
