Response Statement - Olive-sided Flycatcher

The Canadian population of this widespread forest songbird has experienced a substantial long-term decline, although the rate of decrease has slowed over the past decade. Loss of wintering habitat in northern South America is likely the greatest threat facing this aerial insectivore, but the species may also be affected by changes on the breeding grounds such as the effects of altered fire regimes and climate change on nesting habitat quality, and reductions in the abundance and availability of aerial insect prey. Concerns for its status remain, as most of these threats are continuing, and those related to climate change may increase.
