This status report was originally brought to COSEWIC in 1999 but was deferred. This report has now been reformatted to fit the current COSEWIC Status Report template. The text of the report has also been edited for consistency as various addenda provided for assessment in November 2003 by the COSEWIC Birds Specialist Subcommittee and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources have been incorporated into the final text. This report was overseen and edited by Richard Cannings, COSEWIC Birds Specialist Subcommittee Co-Chair.
