This number of species listed by COSEWIC (Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada) that occur in Manitoba continues to grow. At the spring 2014 meeting, Western Grebe (Aechmophorus occidentalis) was added as Special Concern and at the fall 2014 meeting Red-necked Phalarope (Phalaropus lobatus) was also added as Special Concern. With so many species continuing to experience declines, the ever-growing list is cause for ever-growing concern. I took both these photos in Manitoba.
