Did you know that many migratory animals will occupy different habitats or landscapes during the nonbreeding season? ok, most of you know this, but did you know that conservation plans almost never consider this well-known fact when devising action plans? since this means that female-dominated habitats are rarely provided the same level of protection as those dominated by males, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand the developing conservation problem, particularly because males tend to be much more populous when populations are in decline.
this new study goes in to some depth to investigate this widespread problem for neotropical migratory birds, and focuses on the golden-winged warbler as a case study.
