  1. James Westrip says:

    I would not disagree with this proposal.

  2. Wanyoike Wamiti says:

    I totally agree with this proposal. However, regular surveys are needed from time to time to provide recent figures (e.g. the Kenyan survey, and perhaps the only one, used here is dated 2014). Data from African Waterfowl Census and Kenya Bird Map could be consulted as well. Future reviews may therefore require that shorter period findings are used.

  3. Red List Team (BirdLife International) says:

    Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this discussion. We greatly appreciate the time and effort invested by so many people in commenting. The window for consultation is now closed. We will analyse and interpret the new information and post a preliminary decision on this species’s Red List status on this page in early July.

    Thank you once again,
    BirdLife Red List Team

    Preliminary proposal

    Based on available information, our preliminary proposal for the 2021 Red List would be to adopt the proposed classifications outlined in the initial forum discussion.

    There is now a period for further comments until the final deadline in late July, after which the recommended categorisations will be put forward to IUCN.

    The final 2021 Red List categories will be published on the BirdLife and IUCN websites in December 2021, following further checking of information relevant to the assessments by both BirdLife and IUCN.

    Recommended categorisation to be put forward to IUCN

    The final categorisation for this species has not changed. Maccoa Duck is recommended to be listed as Endangered under Criterion A2acde.

    Many thanks for everyone who contributed to the 2021 GTB Forum process. The final 2021 Red List categories will be published on the BirdLife and IUCN websites in December 2021, following further checking of information relevant to the assessments by both BirdLife and IUCN.
