Yellow-throated Vireo

By Team eBird February 15, 2012

Their migration is shown well by the animation above. In late March they return to the Gulf Coast and fill in the breeding range from south to north. The summer breeding range is shown well, but has a few problems that the fringes (should not be so common in northern Minnesota, for example). Some areas with Yellow-throateds (like eastern Pennsylvania) are inexplicably shown as very low low frequency. The localized population in the Texas Hill County (localized to areas of hardwood forest) is probably not shown because of the relatively low percentage of habitat in the area that is appropriate. Their fall departure goes through Florida and the eastern Gulf.

The commoner eastern breeding species, like this one, tend to be modeled very successfully (but there is still room for improvement, and more data will undoubtedly help!)
