About this book

The Golden-winged Warbler is a migratory songbird that breeds in the temperate upper midwestern US (Wisconsin & Minnesota) and Canada (Manitoba) and winters in Central and northern South America. Its small breeding range has been shrinking due to habitat loss, competition and interbreeding. As a result of this disturbing trend, Golden-winged Warblers are being considered for listing as "threatened" or "endangered" under the Endangered Species Act. In preparation for potential listing, Golden-Winged Warbler Ecology, Conservation and Habitat Management intends to bring together all the disparate sources information regarding this species.
