Studying threatened Olive-sided Flycatchers in our Peace Region
In May-June 2018, survey efforts were concentrated in three areas within the study area: 1) Fort Ware, Kwadacha survey area; 2) Tsay Keh Dene survey area; and 3) the 2014 Tenakihi-Mesilinka burn site, Tenakihi-Mesilinka survey area. These areas contain habitat suitable for Olive-sided Flycatchers, including wetlands, cutblocks of varying ages, and recent burns. One hundred and thirteen call-playback surveys were conducted and three male Olive-sided Flycatchers were positively identified. Further surveys and a greater sample size of positive detections are necessary before conclusions can be drawn regarding population estimates, distribution, or the ability of the habitat to support this species.
