Notes

  • S8280 - BirdLife International (2004) estimated that 207-300 pairs breed in AM, GE, TR.
  • T6280 - 90-90% decline reported from TR. No updated info from GE yet (BirdLife International et al., in prep.). This population qualifies for significant long-term decline.
  • S8953 - 36-42 pairs breed in AM, GE, TR. Ilyasenko (2016) provides an estimate of 230-265 individuals from TR and GE.
