Birds and their behavior are providing vital insights into how climate change is threatening species, habitats, and communities worldwide, according to a report by Birdlife International. Climate change is behind shifts in bird habitats and lifecycle changes that are driving population declines, the report finds. It warns that, as warming continues, the majority of species will not be able to adapt; bird communities are also at risk from human responses to climate impacts. The report recommends protecting carbon-rich ecosystems and using nature-based solutions to build resiliency to climate change and mitigate further warming.
