Effects of Human Activity

Continual disturbance of birds by numerous birders (e.g., use of song playback) may disrupt breeding activities. Although the effects of such disturbance are unknown, the most isolated canyons host the most stable populations. Cattle grazing and mining activities have potential to cause disturbance and habitat loss.


No management efforts to date.
