What do Golden-winged Warblers and Nicaraguan Shade Grown coffee have in common? This warbler which passes through Prince Edward County is a Species of Special Concern.

“Special Concern” means the species lives in the wild in Ontario, is not endangered or threatened, but may become threatened or endangered due to a combination of biological characteristics and identified threats.

Habitat destruction is one of the reasons why this beautiful bird is declining. Coffee fields in their wintering habitat contribute to habitat destruction. If you choose, Shade Grown Coffee, the rainforest is not being cut down, thus habitat is preserved.Image attachmentImage attachment
