It weighs less than half an ounce, but a tiny bird native to Central Texas is causing a rift between developers and environmentalists.

The golden-cheeked warbler has been protected by the Endangered Species Act since 1990. According to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the bird nests only in Central Texas woodlands in about 30 counties, roughly between San Antonio and the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
