COSEWIC Status Report on the Bicknell's Thrush (Catharus bicknelli) in Canada

Although Bicknell's Thrush (Catharus bicknelli) records can be traced back to 1881, much remains to be learned about this species due to its historic classification as a subspecies of the Gray-cheeked Thrush (Catharus minimus), its preference for inaccessible, high elevation habitat, and its elusive behaviour. While the species breeds in suitable habitat in Quebec, the Maritimes, and the northeastern United States, the full extent of its wintering range is largely unknown, as are population numbers and trends, and life history traits.
