The Vancouver Island Northern Pygmy-Owl is and always has been uncommon. Population estimates continue to be low. Northern Pygmy-Owl populations may be declining and are expected to decline in the future as a direct result of habitat fragmentation, degradation and loss especially related to lack of suitable nest cavities as snags and large-diameter trees are removed and not replaced across the landscape.
