This pie chart shows the relative likelihood of observing particular other species commonly observed near Sitta canadensis
These species are those which most commonly occur in our observation database near Sitta canadensis. Observations favor some phyla over others. Typically Bacteria, Fungi, Protozoa, and Arthropods are more common in the field than in our records.
This species has a large range, with an estimated global Extent of Occurrence of 7,100,000 km². It has a large global population estimated to be 18,000,000 individuals (Rich et al. 2003). Global population trends have not been quantified, but the species is not believed to approach the thresholds for the population decline criterion of the IUCN Red List (i.e. declining more than 30% in ten years or three generations). For these reasons, the species is evaluated as Least Concern.
Canada; Mexico; Saint Pierre and Miquelon; United States
Spruce-fir forests are the preferred habitat of this nuthatch, but other coniferous forests may also fill this requirement.
