Climate Change, Increasing Temperatures Alter Bird Migration Patterns

Members, here are some info on importance of birds migration. Just for your knowledge....

ScienceDaily (Feb. 23, 2012) — Birds in eastern North America are picking up the pace along their yearly migratory paths. The reason, according to University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill researchers, is rising temperatures due to climate change.

"Timing of bird migration is something critical for the overall health of bird species," he said. "They have to time it right so they can balance arriving on breeding grounds after there's no longer a risk of severe winter conditions. If they get it wrong, they may die or may not produce as many young. A change in migration could begin to contribute to population decline, putting many species at risk for extinction."

The migration birds from north to south this year also less due to
climate change. That:s why I have nothing to shoot here.
Sooner or later, I better cabut in selling all my gears before they become bad liabilities.
