Siberian Rubythroat

Calliope calliope

A rare but regular migrant on the islands of western Alaska, apparently more frequent in spring than in fall. Also has reached the Alaska mainland, and there is one winter record for Ontario. Usually stays close to the ground. Active and elusive, often hiding in dense cover.

How Climate Change Will Reshape the Range of the Siberian Rubythroat

Audubon’s scientists have used 140 million bird observations and sophisticated climate models to project how climate change will affect this bird’s range in the future.

Zoom in to see how this species’s current range will shift, expand, and contract under increased global temperatures.
