  • S1307 - 479: Estimate of 1,000,000-1,500,000 in Morrison et al. (2005) includes Alaskan breeders. 478 estimated 920,000 in Canada. Only 40-50 pairs in Iceland, 150-500 pairs in Greenland (64).
  • T4256 - WPE4 listed estimate of 1,000,000 and trend as DEC 1994-2004 based on Morrison et al. 2005.
  • S8358 - 95% confidence interval around 1,617,000 individuals estimates derived from incomplete PRISM surveys.
  • T7155 - No information on long-term trend exists, although changes at individual Arctic study sites indicate an apparent decline in Canada (Andres et al. 2012). Trend in Europe unknown (BirdLife International 2015).
