Golden-winged Warbler

The Golden-winged Warbler, Vermivora chrysoptera, is a New World warbler, 11.6 cm long and weighing 8.5 g. It breeds in eastern North America in southeastern Canada and the eastern USA. Its range is extending northwards, but in the south it is being replaced by the very closely related Blue-winged Warbler, Vermivora pinus.

The Golden-winged Warbler is classified as Near Threatened (NT), is close to qualifying for or is likely to qualify for a threatened category in the near future.

The Golden-winged Warbler is a small, strikingly marked warbler of eastern early successional habitats. Its population increased for over 100 years as forests were cut down. Now, however, it is losing ground, both because of reforestation and displacement by the spreading Blue-winged Warbler. More

The breeding male Golden-winged Warbler is unmistakable. It is gray above and whitish below. The crown and wing patches are yellow and the eye mask and throat are black, separated by white. Females are duller, with the black of the face pattern replaced by gray. The breeding habitat is open scrubby areas. Golden-winged Warblers nest on the ground or low in a bush, laying 4-5 eggs in a cup nest. These birds feed on insects, and spiders. More

The Golden-winged Warbler Atlas Project (GOWAP) is designed to determine the population status and habitat and area requirements of the Golden-winged Warbler and the Blue-winged Warbler as well as their hybrids. The Golden-winged Warbler is a Neotropical migratory species that is of high conservation concern within Partners in Flight (PIF). This study engages volunteer birders and professional biologists to survey and conduct point counts at known and potential breeding sites of Golden-winged Warblers from May through July. More

The Golden-winged Warbler is a small but stunning songbird of the northeastern and north-central United States and parts of southern Canada. It occurs in the mountains of North Carolina, and is primarily an inhabitant of early successional habitats. Its scientific name roughly translates to " a worm eating, golden-winged warbler", which is only partially correct. This bird appears to be declining in many areas and has disappeared from previously occupied regions. More

The Golden-winged Warbler (Vermivora chrysoptera) has been identified as a focal species due to fairly extensive population declines and range contractions during recent decades. This small warbler occupies early successional shrubby habitats during the breeding season and various edge and successional habitats during migration and winter. While it may have benefited from extensive timber harvesting across its range during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, more recently, reforestation and fire suppression have limited the creation and maintenance of its preferred shrubby habitats.

Features: The Golden-winged Warbler (Vermivora chrysoptera) is a small songbird of the new world wood-warbler family. Both females and males are grey, with white undersides and distinctive yellow wing patches and crown. While females have light grey feathers surrounding the eyes and throat, males have a characteristic black throat and cheek. Their preferred breeding habitat is areas of early successional vegetation, found primarily on field edges, hydro or utility right-of-ways, or recently logged areas. More

It is a trill, not unlike a cross between a Worm-eating Warbler and a Pine Warbler. More

Golden-winged Warblers are birds of early successional habitats, including pastures that are reverting to woodlands, brushy fields, and the shrubby borders of streams. Golden-winged Warblers prefer the early stages of succession and when that stage has passed, they move on and are often replaced by Blue-winged Warblers, which tolerate a wider range of successional habitats.

The Golden-winged Warbler Working Group is comprised of over 80 United States, Canadian, and Latin American ornithologists, conservationists, and managers from academia, federal and state agencies, international non-governmental organizations, and industry. The Working Group met for three days in August 2005 in Siren, Wisconsin, to develop priorities for research and strategies for outreach, education, and conservation action for the species. Working Group Objectives 1. More

The golden-winged warbler is a habitat specialist and prefers to nest in early successional fields with a combination of shrubby and open areas within the territory. In New York this type of habitat is found in abandoned farmlands in the early stages of succession and in scrub/shrub wetlands. Status This species is becoming increasingly localized and uncommon throughout the state. More

and, like the Golden-winged Warbler, usually has a white breast and gray back, but has a thin eye line and separate wing bars typical of the Blue-winged Warbler. The Lawrence's Warbler has the black eye and black throat patch of a Golden-winged Warbler but has the yellow undersides and yellow-olive back of a Blue-winged Warbler. Intermediate forms occur and may result from matings between two hybrids and between hybrids and parental phenotypes. More

The Golden-winged Warbler is a small bird found throughout eastern North America, including the eastern United States and southeastern Canada, where it prefers to breed. This species migrates in winter months to warmer southern Central America, Columbia, Venezuela and Ecuador. They are rarely found in western Europe. The Golden-winged Warbler’s breeding grounds are found in open scrublands. This bird builds its cup nest on the ground or very near it in low bushes. More
