Chasing Golden-winged Warblers


with Curtis Smalling of Audubon North Carolina

It's our special Birdathon fundraising meeting! We'll have a raffle and great gifts to take home with a donation. So please bring cash/check and donate (a little or a lot!) to help conserve and protect land in Western North Carolina vital to Golden-winged Warblers!

Golden-winged Warblers are a bird of high conservation priority across their range, which includes the Southern Appalachians. They have the smallest population of any imperiled bird species not on the federal endangered list. Advances in technology have allowed scientists to learn so much more about the migration routes, wintering sites and amazing pieces of the daily lives of these charismatic warblers. Join us for a look at what we know about the beautiful warbler and how this research is helping guide conservation efforts on both public and private lands.
