Abstract

The golden-cheeked warbler (Setophaga chrysoparia) is an endangered songbird whose eastern breeding range is undergoing rapid urbanization and concomitant changes to the predator community. We document the first observation of a golden-cheeked warbler nest depredated by the range-expanding blue jay (Cyanocitta cristata) to highlight the potential impacts of warbler nest predation by corvids in urban landscapes.
