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 charismatic species can be found strutting, chicken-like, along the forest floor or large, horizontal branches and logs in rich forests of both the North and the East. Audubon's climate model projects a large (two-thirds) shift northward in potential summer range, with a small total increase in area. A fair bit of this newly climatically suitable breeding area is north of the current tree line, though, and it would have to rapidly develop from tundra into a mature forest before the Ovenbird could take advantage of it. The model’s winter projection is tempered by the fact that most Ovenbirds winter in the Neotropics.
