The male Golden-cheeked Warbler is easily identified by the bright yellow face with a narrow black line through the eye, while the female is similar to Black-throated Greens. The breeding range for the Golden-cheeked Warbler is limited to the Texas Hill Country, Edwards Plateau, where is found exclusively in mixed Juniper-oak woodlands. It winters in mountainous pine-oak forests in Mexico and Guatemala. The endemic Golden-cheeked Warbler is on the Federal Endangered Species list, but without proactive land management practices to counter Brown-Headed Cowbirds and habitat fragmentation vital genetic heritage will be lost.
