The State of Boreal Chickadee
Mountain Birdwatch data suggest that Boreal Chickadee populations in the northeastern United States have been mostly stable since 2011. Boreal Chickadee was not one of the original Mountain Birdwatch species.
Globally: Probably Stable
Because they occupy remote areas without road access, and because they tend to be quiet and secretive during the breeding season, Boreal Chickadees are not well-monitored by the Breeding Bird Survey. Available data, though, suggest that populations of Boreal Chickadees are stable.
Opportunities for Conservation
Populations appear stable at present. In the future, habitat for Boreal Chickadees is at risk of disappearance due to climate change.
What We Can Do to Help
As with many species, long-term conservation of Boreal Chickadees depends on addressing the climate change caused by our activities. This means supporting government policies – and making individual choices – that lead to a reduction in greenhouse-gas concentrations.
