Description

This wildlife status report looks at the western grebe, a North American waterbird that winters on the Pacific coast and migrates inland to breed at the shallow margins of medium to large lakes and wetlands. The species is local and uncommon in Alberta and is ranked as Sensitive based on the lack of data, the species' sensitivity to human disturbance, and habitat degradation. This report is part of the Alberta Wildlife Status Report series, which provides comprehensive summaries of selected wildlife species intended to be useful to those managing populations of species and their habitats, and to help identify species that may be formally designated as endangered or threatened.
