Placed on New Jersey's list of endangered species in February, a majority of the state's Golden-winged Warblers can be found in Sandyston, Hardyston and Sparta, said Sharon Petzinger, senior zoologist for the state Division of Fish and Wildlife.
The petite songbird is 4.8 inches tall, weighs 8 grams, and sports flashy plumage. The males especially can be recognized by their bright yellow caps, patches of yellow on their wings, black eye patches and throat, and white underbellies.
