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 large, plump, and unwary finch is a favorite at winter feeders in Canada and the northern U.S. Audubon's climate model predicts that only 13 percent of the summer range will remain stable, and the total amount of appropriate summer climatespace is forecast to contract by 44 percent. Of particular concern is the population that nests in the mountains of the lower 48 states. As is the case with many high-altitude breeders, climate change is projected to cause a significant contraction of the Pine Grosbeak’s range. The winter range seems more (64 percent) stable, with only a small (15 percent) contraction. Pine Grosbeaks are also found across most of northern Eurasia.
