Sprague's pipit conservation management plan

Description

The Sprague's pipit is a small, ground-nesting songbird which, in Alberta, is found almost exclusively on native prairie. The bird is designated a Species of Special Concern in Alberta due to its large historic population decline and potential for continuing habitat alteration. This plan provides background information on the species and outlines a set of objectives and management actions to help meet the goals of returning Sprague's pipit populations to the mean abundance levels between 1980 and 1989, and conserving and maintaining remaining native prairie within the historic range of the species in Alberta. Conservation management plans are developed for Species of Special Concern in Alberta, to provide guidance for land and resource management decisions that affect the species and their habitat. They are intended to be a resource tool for provincial and regional fish and wildlife, land and resource management staff.
