Prothonotary Warbler

The Prothonotary Warbler is a beautiful sight with it’s yellow-orange head and breast and gray wings. It’s found in southern-wooded swamps and winters in Central and South America.

ACJV staff and partners work to protect large tracts of forested wetlands in the Southeastern US, e.g., through the North American Wetland Conservation Act (NAWCA) Grants Program. The Prothonotary Warbler Working Group and partners in SC are developing a project to outfit these warblers with geolocators to help determine where they winter, and once this information is known, partners can work internationally to conserve wintering habitat for the Prothontary Warbler.
