Good news for one of my favorite wood-warblers:

American Bird Conservancy and Fundación ProAves, the leading bird conservation organizations in the U.S. and Colombia respectively, have secured thirteen new conservation easements in Colombia with private landowners that will protect important habitat for the Cerulean Warbler – North America’s fastest declining neotropical migrant songbird.

Though breeding grounds for neotropical migrants get the bulk of attention in North America wintering grounds are just as critical, and any news about land being preserved as wintering habitat for the Cerulean Warbler is wonderful.
