Golden-winged Warbler


Finding on Petition to List under the Endangered Species Act


Golden-winged warbler

The golden-winged warbler is a small songbird found in the north-central and eastern United States. The Service was petitioned to list this warbler and the petitioners included information to support their request. The Service has reviewed that information and issued a "positive finding." The finding triggers a thorough review of all available information to determine if the golden-winged warbler's status warrants protection under the Endangered Species Act.
