The Golden-cheeked Warbler (Setophaga chrysoparia) breeds exclusively in juniper–oak woodlands in central Texas (Ladd and Gass 1999). It was listed as endangered in 1990 because of habitat loss and fragmentation (Smith 1990). Much of the research on the Golden-cheeked Warbler’s demography has been part of long-term monitoring at Fort Hood Military Reservation and at Balcones Canyonlands Preserve (see Groce et al. 2010). The species has been banded and monitored at other locations as well, including Kerr Wildlife Management Area (WMA), Kerr County.
