The federal, provincial, and territorial government atories under the Accord for the Protection of Species at Risk agreed to establish complementary legislation and programs that provide for effective protection of species at risk throughout Canada. Under the Species at Risk Act S. To the extent possible, it has been prepared in cooperation with the Government of British Columbia. Success in the recovery of this species depends on the commitment and cooperation of many different constituencies that will be involved in implementing the directions set out in this strategy and will not be achieved by Environment and Climate Change Canada, or any other jurisdiction alone.

All Canadians are invited to in supporting and implementing this strategy for the benefit of the Yellow-breasted Chat auricollis subspecies and Canadian society as a whole. Implementation of this strategy is subject to appropriations, priorities, and budgetary constraints of the participating jurisdictions and organizations.

The recovery strategy sets the strategic direction to arrest or reverse the decline of the species, including identification of critical habitat to the extent possible. It provides all Canadians with information to help take action on species conservation. When critical habitat is identified, either in a recovery strategy or an action plan, there may be future regulatory implications, depending on where the critical habitat is identified.

SARA requires that critical habitat identified within a national park named and described in Schedule 1 to the Canada National Parks Act, the Rouge National Urban Park established by the Rouge National Urban Park Act, a marine protected area under the Oceans Act, a migratory bird sanctuary under the Migratory Birds Convention Act, or a national wildlife area under the Canada Wildlife Act be described in the Canada Gazette, after which prohibitions against its destruction will apply.

For critical habitat located on other federal lands, the competent minister must either make a statement on existing legal protection or make an order so that the prohibition against destruction of critical habitat applies. For any part of critical habitat located on non-federal lands, if the competent minister forms the opinion that any portion of critical habitat is not protected by provisions in or measures under SARA or other Acts of Parliament, or the laws of the province or territory, SARA requires that the Minister recommend that the Governor in Council make an order to prohibit destruction of critical habitat.

The discretion to protect critical habitat on non-federal lands that is not otherwise protected rests with the Governor in Council.

The Yellow-breasted Chat is a large wood warbler with a bright yellow throat and breast; white belly; olive green back, wings and tail; and a blue-grey head with conspicuous white "spectacles". Yellow-breasted Chats are neotropical migrants, and are only present in Canada between spring and late summer.

The species was listed as Endangered under the Species at Risk Act in Recovery of the Yellow-breasted Chat auricollis subspecies is considered to be biologically and technically feasible.

In British Columbia, the Yellow-breasted Chat has been found exclusively in dense riparian thickets and usually nests in wild rose bushes. It is estimated there are approximately breeding pairs of Yellow-breasted Chat in the province. The primary threat to the species is the loss, degradation, and fragmentation of its habitat through development, roide vegetation removal, and livestock grazing. Additional threats include accidental death through collisions with vehicles and other objects, nest predation, brood parasitism, disturbance by humans, and pesticides.

The population and distribution objective is to support approximately breeding pairs within the current extent of occurrence of this species in British Columbia. Broad strategies to be taken to address the threats to the survival and recovery of the species are presented in the section on Strategic Direction for Recovery. Critical habitat for the Yellow-breasted Chat in British Columbia consists of low-lying riparian habitats. Critical habitat is identified in the Okanagan valley approximately hain the Similkameen valley approximately haand in southeastern British Columbia approximately 16 ha.

Recovery of the Yellow-breasted Chat auricollis subspecies Southern Mountain population is biologically and technically feasible, based on the following four criteria Government of Canada :. Individuals of the species that are capable of reproduction are available now or in the foreseeable future to sustain the population or improve its abundance. Yes; current best estimates are of approximately breeding pairs in British Columbia.

Sufficient suitable habitat is available to support the species, or additional suitable habitat could be made available through habitat management and restoration.

This can be mitigated through habitat protection and stewardship measures, and habitat restoration efforts. Habitat loss is also a concern within migration and wintering areas in the United States, Mexico, and Central America, and for adjacent Yellow-breasted Chat populations in the United States. The extent to which threats in those areas can be mitigated is unknown.

Recovery techniques exist to achieve the population and distribution objective, or can be expected to be developed within a reasonable timeframe. Yes; recovery techniques are well established, and consist of habitat protection, and habitat restoration and enhancement e. As the small Canadian population of Yellow-breasted Chat auricollis subspecies occurs at the northern part of its continental range, and the vast majority of its continental distribution and population occurs further south in the United States, it is important to note that population changes at the continental level may have a ificant effect on the recovery feasibility in Canada.

If the continental population of Yellow-breasted Chat auricollis subspecies experiences an ongoing downward or upward population trend, its range may expand or contract towards the centre of its range or near the periphery. In these cases, the rate of recovery of the Canadian population, and the rate of achievement of population and distribution goals, may reflect both these continental range changes, and local response to the provision of suitable habitat and mitigation of key threats. At present, there is insufficient data to evaluate trends for Yellow-breasted Chat auricollis subspecies.

Reason for Deation: This subspecies is a shrub-thicket specialist that occurs at the northern edge of its range in Canada. The small population, which is restricted to the Southern Mountain Ecological Area in British Columbia, is localized to a particular type of riparian habitat.

A of threats have been identified as serious concerns, including cattle tramping of rose thickets, road maintenance and urbanization, agricultural and potential hydro-electric development of the Similkameen River. Status re-examined and deated Endangered in November and November The auricollis subspecies Southern Mountain population of the Yellow-breasted Chat that is the subject of this recovery strategy has not been ranked globally or nationally by NatureServe NatureServe However, it has been provincially ranked B.

Table 1. The Yellow-breasted Chat is the largest wood warbler species in North America. There are two recognized subspecies: Icteria virens virens in eastern North America and Icteria virens auricollis in western North America. The auricollis subspecies hereafter: Yellow-breasted Chats are approximately 18 cm in length and weigh approximately 25 g. Yellow-breasted Chats have a bright yellow throat and breast; white belly; olive green back, wings and tail; and a blue-grey head with conspicuous white "spectacles". Males are brighter in colour than females.

Chats are elusive to human observers, and Okanagan Valley city adult chat rooms most easily detected during the breeding season, when males deliver a loud, distinctive song consisting of a jumble of harsh, chattering clucks and soft caws, alternating with repeated whistles Eckerle and Thompson The global population is estimated at 12 million individuals.

The western subspecies auricollis breeds west from the central Great Plains and prairies, from southern Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, to northern Mexico in the south. This western subspecies winters from northern Mexico and southern Texas in the north, to central Guatemala in the south.

In Canada, the western subspecies auricollis occurs in two disjunct populations: the prairie population, assessed as not at risk, breeds in southeastern Alberta and southern Saskatchewan; the endangered Southern Mountain population breeds in south-central and southeastern British Columbia COSEWIC This strategy focuses on the endangered Southern Mountain population of the Yellow-breasted Chat auricollis subspecies.

Figure 1 shows the global breeding and wintering range of both subspecies of Yellow-breasted Chat. It winters from northern Mexico and southern Texas in the north, to central Guatemala in the south. Cannings, pers. Fromcomprehensive annual surveys in the South Okanagan Valley led to British Columbia population estimates of up to 72 pairs Bishop unpublished data.

More recent surveys in indicate there may be as many as pairs in the Okanagan Valley Bishop unpublished data. In the Similkameen Valley, no comprehensive surveys have been conducted, but sightings from local bird-watchers indicate that Yellow-breasted Chats are present and breeding is probable. Init was estimated that the of chats in the Similkameen was similar to that in the South Okanagan both estimated at 72 pairsbased on the amount of suitable habitat available Gibbard and GibbardBishop unpublished, British Columbia Ministry of Environment Lands and ParksWarman and Sarell However, ificant habitat restoration work has been undertaken in the Okanagan in the last decade, allowing more chat territories to be supported; the Similkameen estimate remains at 72 pairs.

A single nest record exists for the Central Okanagan, from Kelowna in R. McKibbin, pers. This was the first nesting record in British Columbia outside the Okanagan and Similkameen valleys. Detailed territory mapping was conducted for one pair of chats nesting in Creston in Machmer and Ogle Over the past 20 years, additional sightings of Yellow-breasted Chats with no confirmed breeding have been reported from elsewhere in the province: Vernon and nearby areas, Kamloops, Cache Creek, Pitt Meadows, Vancouver, and Mission Campbell et al.

While more data on population distribution and connectivity are required, the Southern Mountain population appears to be geographically but not genetically Mino et al. It is estimated that there are approximately breeding pairs in the province. Research findings from the South Okanagan Valley indicate that the area supports a stable population with a high percentage of returned birds, and is not just "overflow" from the United States C.

Bishop pers. Surveys conducted by Environment Canada during in Washington State in riparian areas on the Okanagan River up to km immediately south of British Columbia found very sparse occurrences of Yellow-breasted Chat; although one colour-banded individual from the south Okanagan was seen.

There is little evidence to suggest that the current breeding distribution of Yellow-breasted Chat in British Columbia differs ificantly from past distribution at a broad scale Cannings et. There are insufficient data to estimate a population trend for British Columbia. However, Yellow-breasted Chats were historically reported to be in almost every riparian area throughout the South Okanagan Valley Taverner in Cannings et al. Figure 2 shows the breeding distribution of Yellow-breasted Chat auricollis in Canada, including ed populations in British Columbia.

The locations are found in central and south Okanagan and Similkameen valleys and in south-eastern British Columbia near the city of Trail.
