Owing to population declines that have been taking place over the past four decades in eastern Canada, the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) assessed the eastern subspecies of the Grasshopper Sparrow as Special Concern. The Grasshopper Sparrow joins the ranks of many other grassland birds that are facing significant conservation challenges across North America.
