Critical Habitat Orders

Critical Habitat of the Cerulean Warbler (Setophaga cerulea) Order: SOR/2022-97

The Cerulean Warbler (Setophaga cerulea) is a small wood warbler bird that breeds in the deciduous forests of eastern North America but has a patchy distribution. The main threats to this species of bird are habitat loss and degradation of its wintering grounds. In addition, major threats to the species’ breeding grounds are related to habitat loss and degradation caused by some forms of intensive logging and the conversion of mature forest to agricultural lands. In 2005, the Cerulean Warbler was listed under the Species at Risk Act (SARA) as special concern. The species was subsequently reassessed by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) in 2010 as endangered. In 2017, the status of the species was reclassified from special concern to endangered on Schedule 1 of SARA.
