Notes

  • S1875 - 344: undercounted or missed due to lack of surveys of vast dryland areas where birds feed, so estimate revised to range 25,000 - 100,000 rather than former 27,000 (697).
  • S7004 - Estimate based on a broader interpretation of 1993 estimate, informed by some recent data, yet more conservative than WPE4.
