Antigua and Barbuda is an island nation located on the eastern boundary of the Caribbean Sea with the Atlantic Ocean. As its name suggests, it consists of two major islands Antigua and Barbuda as well as a number of smaller islets.
Barbuda Warbler is the only endemic bird from Barbuda. This warbler is closely related to Adelaide's warbler from Puerto Rico and the St. Lucia Warbler from St. Lucia. Barbuda Warbler inhabits a diversity of habitats on this small island, including thorn-scrub forests in the interior and woodlands bordering pools and ponds. The population of the Barbuda Warbler has been estimated to be between 1000 and 2500 individuals. However, this warbler has been little studied, and population trends are unknown. The small range of the Barbuda warbler (160 sq km), as well as the low elevation of the islands contribute to this bird's vulnerability.
