Setophaga chrysoparia by Linda Feltner(8 in. x 8 in. | Gouache | ID#4170)
Family: PARULIDAE | Conservation Status: Endangered | Population Trend: decreasing
The Golden-cheeked Warbler (Setophaga chrysoparia) is an iconic bird of the Texas Hill Country. Nesting nowhere else in the world but here, in the oak-juniper woodlands, where they find older forests abundant with insect diversity and caterpillars. Their need for specific habitats for both breeding and wintering makes the species extremely vulnerable to loss due to clearing for livestock, urban development, timber harvesting and agriculture. Conservation programs have been established in Texas and Latin America to raise awareness for the need to maintaining habitat.
