Golden-winged Warbler

 

Golden-winged Warbler by Barth Schorre

 

The Golden-winged Warbler is one of the most threatened, non-federally listed species in eastern North America. Its decline is primarily due to habitat loss, particularly from suburban sprawl and changes to our eastern forests. It also suffers from competition and hybridization with Blue-winged Warblers, cowbird parasitism, and potentially loss of wintering habitat. ABC is working in the U.S. and Latin America to help this species.
