Golden-cheeked Warbler

The Golden-cheeked Warbler is an endangered bird since 1990. They eat insects and spiders found on leaves and bark. They use long strips of tree bark and spider webs to build their nests. They come to Texas in March to nest and leave in July to Mexico.

They are found in the Edwards Plateau and north to Palo Pinto County. They are endangered because many of their nesting trees have been cut down to build homes. Their habitat was cleared to grow crops and others were flooded. This can be prevented by not cutting down their trees that they need to nest.
