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.
The lively Canada Warbler lives in dense tangles of broad-leafed plants. It can often be seen as it sallies out from the dark recesses to catch flying insects. Audubon's climate model doesn’t make any winter projections because Canada Warblers fly very far south to spend winter, often to the Andes of South America. The ingrained drive to migrate great distances may be what, if anything, can save this species from extinction as the breeding range shifts completely by 2080. Thankfully, the Canada Warbler breeds in scrubby, second-growth areas, so it may not take long for its preferred habitat to generate in an expanding (by 34 percent) climate space-if the birds are around to find it.
