The darker the color, the more favorable the climate conditions are for survival. The outlined areas represent approximate current range for each season. More on reading these maps.
This species is commonly seen confidently strutting around parking lots looking for French fries and assembling in livestock pens in much of western North America. Interestingly, the species is inconspicuous and even shy in the eastern portion of its range. Audubon's climate model predicts a significant shift in summer range, as only 29 percent is stable. It also projects a substantial (48 percent) decrease in total suitable climatic space in summer by 2080. The winter projections look much less dire, though Many Brewer’s Blackbirds winter in Mexico, making overall winter projections less complete.
