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 Marbled Godwit is an impressively large, strikingly long-billed, mainly cinnamon–brown inhabitant of open districts in the middle of the continent, favoring wet habitats. Audubon's climate model projects a 100 percent loss of current summer range by 2080. The wintering grounds may expand considerably, with southern Arizona and inland California in particular opening up to non-breeding Marbled Godwits, as long as water resources are available.
