GOWAP results will be used to develop two detailed atlases: a Distribution map that shows boundaries for areas of high concentration of Golden-winged Warblers in sufficient detail to indicate potential sites for preservation and management, and a Hybrid Index Map that will help us locate key "safe haven" sites within the area of overlap where golden-wing and blue-wing hybridization is rare.
Dates: Golden-wings tend to arrive relatively early on the breeding grounds in the spring and depart very early in the fall. The appropriate dates for studying these species are as follows:
