Golden Cheeked Warbler Facts
Golden-cheeked Warblers only eat insects. They glean foliage for beetles, caterpillars, flies and spiders. They are endemic to central Texas and are dependent on Ashe Juniper Woodlands. As urban areas expanded and the Warblers woodlands disappeared and so did their numbers. They were listed as endangered in 1990. Conservations efforts to preserve and add habitat have proven moderately successful. The Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge was established specifically to protect Golden-cheeked Warbler Habitat and offers birders and hikers alike a great chance at viewing one in the wild.
