Wheeler - Loggerhead Shrike (#37)
Short name: OntLOSH
Short description: Captive bred Loggerhead Shrike experiment.
Description: Wildlife Preservation Canada has been coordinating the captive-breeding and release program for Loggerhead Shrike in Ontario since 2003. PVAs have indicated that overwinter survival of hatch-year and second-year birds is the most sensitive factor in determining the population trend, suggesting that the main threats to our Ontario population may lie either on the wintering grounds, or along the migratory routes. This information is the main information gap that exists for the species in Ontario, so WPC has started to deploy radio tags on captive-bred juveniles prior to release, to track their migratory movements and locate wintering grounds.
