After all the positive feedback on the program given by Brad Kreps of the Nature Conservancy on their conservation efforts in the Clinch River Valley, it seemed that more information would be of interest.
The Nature Conservancy Magazine had an article which mentions the benefits to the Golden-winged Warbler. Here is a link to that article: https://www.nature.org/en-us/magazine/magazine-articles/cumberland-forest-project/. There is a more full PDF report recapping efforts to help birds in the Commonwealth that can be downloaded here.
Also here are a couple of other links that you might enjoy:
