SCIENTIFIC NAME: Cardellina rubrifrons
POPULATION: 700,000
TREND: Declining
HABITAT: Breeds in high mountain forests, winters in cloud forests

The Red-faced Warbler is one of only two North American warblers with red plumage; the other is the Painted Redstart, another species of the Mexican border.

This flashy warbler shares high-altitude forest habitats (sometimes called “sky islands” because they are isolated mountaintops surrounded by much drier habitat) with other neotropical migrants such as Olive-sided Flycatcher and Thick-billed Parrot. Red-faced Warblers are sensitive to habitat loss on both breeding and wintering grounds.
