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 brightly colored vireo is fairly common but easily overlooked in the hardwood forests of the eastern half of the U.S. Audubon's climate model projects a 73 % loss of summer climate range by 2080, depicting a contraction within its current range and a strong drift northward. Whether the species will survive further north depends on the species’ preferred broadleaf forests shifting as well.
