Proposed recovery strategies for the Bobolink (Dolichonyx oryzivorus) and Eastern Meadowlark (Sturnella magna) in Canada

The Bobolink and Eastern Meadowlark are both medium-sized migratory songbirds experiencing population declines. These species depend on open grassland habitats including meadows, hayfields, and pastures. Threats to the Bobolink and Eastern Meadowlark include mortality from agricultural operations, habitat loss, and pesticide exposure.

Environment and Climate Change Canada has developed proposed recovery strategies for these species that include information about their population and distribution objectives, threats, and activities likely to destroy habitat that is critical to their survival and recovery. To learn more about these species and the critical habitat required for their survival, please visit the links below.
