Climate Threat: This vibrant warbler makes its home in the dense Canadian foliage. According to Audubon's climate models, the species' breeding range will look completely different by 2080. But because it flies as far south as the Andes Mountains each winter, there might be some room for adaptation.
About the Artist: Andres Alvarez is a New York-based artist. He was born in the Dominican Republic and spent most of his teenage years in Puerto Rico before moving to the United States in 1995. Even though art has always been part of his life—mostly in the form of drawings and doodles—it wasn’t until 2013 that he decided to allow his artistic pursuits play a bigger role in his life. Since then, Alvarez's curiosity and drive have taken him through a path of creative exploration and self-improvement. Follow him on Instagram.
The Artist on the Mural: “I chose the Canada Warbler because of its mix of subtle gray and eye-catching yellow. Along with black accents, this bird has an air of elegance and flawless color harmony that nature constantly tends to achieve.”
