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 species is particularly well named: it nests only in pine woodlands of the East. Audubon's climate model projects a significant (72 percent) shift in summer range and a small (22 percent) decrease in ideal summer climate space. Unlike most warblers, this species’ winter range is currently almost entirely within the U.S. The model predicts that to remain true, but that the range may shift northward. While climatically suitable area is projected to become available along the Pacific Coast and in Alaska, this eastern short-distance migrant is probably not well suited to take advantage of them.
