SCIENTIFIC NAME: Cardellina versicolor
POPULATION: 20,000 – 50,000 
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Highland pine-oak or cloud forests and edges; also shrubby understory.

The species name, versicolor, is Latin for “changeable or various colors” and refers to the warbler’s head plumage. Depending on lighting, the color appears either frosty pink or a deeper red than the rest of its body. 

Pink-headed Warbler is only found in the highlands of Guatemala and the neighboring Mexican state of Chiapas. It’s considered Vulnerable to extinction by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) due to ongoing habitat loss.
