The Golden-winged Warbler is a migratory songbird that breeds in the temperate upper midwestern US (Wisconsin & Minnesota) and Canada (Manitoba) and winters in Central and northern South America. Its small breeding range has been shrinking due to habitat loss, competition and interbreeding. As a result of this disturbing trend, Golden-winged Warblers are being considered for listing as "threatened" or "endangered" under the Endangered Species Act. In preparation for potential listing, the book intends to bring together all the disparate sources information regarding this species.
