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.
Where there are sufficiently dense woodlands—it doesn’t really matter what type—in the far west, this distinctively greenish bird is likely to be found. Audubon’s climate model projection shows the potential for remarkable range shifts in both summer and winter, with over half of the current suitable climate space in summer shifting by 2080. Although surprising, the prediction of suitable climate in peninsular Florida could be a sign of things to come. There are winter records of this migratory flycatcher far from the Pacific slope, and it is conceivable that a few enterprising individuals could start a trend.
