State of the Birds 2010: Climate Change


    Annual State of the Birds report is just out and available here. Bottom line: Climate change threatens hundreds of species of migratory birds, already stressed by habitat loss, hunting and other human development.

   The report is a collaboration of the US Fish & Wildlife Service and numerous conservation agencies. More on this soon.

   Update:  Another study reports that climate change may be forcing birds on North America's East Coast to become smaller.
