Description: Saskatchewan provides habitat for a number of grassland specialists that are of high conservation concern. For example, 10 of 12 “primary endemic,” and 17 of 25 “secondary endemic” species of the Great Plains identified by Mengel (1970) regularly breed in Saskatchewan. In addition, each of the 30 species of high conservation concern currently identified in the Prairie Partners in Flight Bird Conservation Plan regularly breed in the province (Anderson et al., unpubl. data). Some species (e.g., Baird’s Sparrow, Ammodramus bairdii), reach their greatest abundance in Saskatchewan (Sauer et al. 2002). While several species occur in seeded/introduced grassland (Davis and Duncan 2000), others such as Sprague’s Pipit (Anthus spragueii) occur almost exclusively on native prairie (Owens and Myres 1973, Davis et al. 1999, McMaster and Davis 2001).
