The endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler is the only endemic nesting bird of Texas — the entire world population breeds in a small patch of mature Ashe juniper found in the center of the Lone Star State. For winter, they fly south to Central America.
The unique habitat used by this species is under heavy pressure from urban sprawl, and as recently as 2019, federal courts have fought against petitions to remove this warbler from the Endangered Species Act.
