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 handsome species doesn’t probe the ground for earthworms, but rather, specializes in feeding from clusters of dead leaves, which might explain its overall coloration. It hangs upside down and probes into the leaves, often finding small caterpillars, or “inchworms,” to consume. The model’s projections do not paint a rosy picture for the species. Audubon's climate model projects an 89 percent loss of current summer range by 2080, showing a general diffusion of suitable climate to both the north and south.
