The Golden-winged Warbler is a dynamo, practically buzzing with activity as it moves through the trees. It also undertakes an amazing migration, traveling from its breeding grounds in the northeastern United States to wintering areas in Central and South America.

The species is notable for another reason: It has suffered one of the steepest population declines of any songbird. Since 1966, the species has been reduced by 66 percent, mostly because of habitat loss on its breeding grounds.
