Wood Thrush, American Woodcock, and Golden-winged Warblers depend on healthy, diverse forest types to thrive, and their low numbers are ringing the alarm bell. New York is nearly 70% forested, but we’re losing quality habitat. Since our forests are also critical to improving water quality and mitigating the effects of climate change, this issue affects people too.
