Golden-cheeked Warbler is an Endangered species and is on the State of the Birds Watch List, which lists bird species that are at risk of becoming threatened or endangered without conservation action. Partners in Flight estimates a global breeding population of 21, with % spending some part of the year in the U.S., and 21% in Mexico.
