Which wood-warbler species are members of the “Watch List?"

(As a Watch List member, Hermit Warbler (above photo) populations are stressed by ongoing habitat loss in both their breeding and non-breeding range.)

Thanks for the question, Kerry W. from Polesville, PN.


Coordinated by the Audubon Society and the America Bird Conservancy, the Watch List aims to rally conservationists around America's most imperiled birds. In so doing, the Watch List employs the latest available research from the bird conservation community along with citizen science data from the Christmas Bird Count and the annual Breeding Bird Survey to identify species in the continental U.S. and Hawaii that are in need of immediate conservation help. It is a call to action to save species fighting for survival amid a convergence of environmental challenges, including habitat loss, invasive species and global warming.

The current wood-warbler family members on the Watch List:

Bachman's Warbler
Blue-winged Warbler
Golden-winged Warbler
Virginia's Warbler
Colima Warbler
Lucy's Warbler
Golden-cheeked Warbler
Hermit Warbler
Grace's Warbler
Kirtland's Warbler
Prairie Warbler
Bay-breasted Warbler
Cerulean Warbler
Prothonotary Warbler
Worm-eating Warbler
Swainson's Warbler
Kentucky Warbler
Canada Warbler
Red-faced Warbler
