Audubon report finds hundreds of bird species in peril

In addition to protecting habitats, the Audubon Society is working toward new policies to prevent further effects of climate change.

Scientists concluded that 34% of Ohio's 219 bird species are vulnerable to climate change across seasons, including species like warblers, fish crows and sparrows. In the worst case, in which nothing is done, that number would double. The study showed that more than half of the bird species in North America could lose at least half of their current ranges by 2080 because of rising temperatures. "And then on top of the range shifts, we also have the pressure of changes in sea level rise, urbanization, extreme weather events that are going to affect these species no matter where they go".

The report says keeping down global temperatures could help three quarters of those threatened birds. But in the scenario where we work to reduce carbon emissions, hold global temperature increases to 1.5 degrees Celsius and improve our resiliency, our models suggest that more than three-quarters of these potentially affected species may be spared.

"Based on the trajectory at the moment in terms of emissions, that's very reasonable to think", Lyon said.

Like the rest of North America, the report shows many of South Carolina's birds are likely to experience range shifts in the future as a result of a changing climate, with almost 20 percent of the state's 236 bird species included in the study identified as vulnerable to climate change. More species could end up breeding in the tundra, and much of the rest of Canada could see an increased variety of birds fleeing southern habitats that had become too warm. It was awesome to me the people I heard from who don't think about birds, and they thought it was awful.

The report includes an interactive zip code-based tool, the Birds and Climate Visualizer, to help users understand the impacts to birds where they live, making climate change even more local, immediate and, for tens of millions of bird fans, deeply personal. Wells said ME is home to a total of 285 regularly occurring breeding, migrant and wintering species of birds.

The existential threat to birds also impacts humanity. "Some birds are likely to adapt in ways we can't foresee".

And more alarming than the loss of songs and flashes of color at the backyard feeder is what birds like the American robin tell us about the speed of the changes. In fact, birds are already suffering at the hands of climate change and other human-caused environmental threats, according to scientists.

The news for Canada is much worse.

Other species the report predicts would disappear from ME are the white-throated sparrow, the dark-eyed junko, the purple finch and the black-throated green warbler.

The common loon is one of several species that has already seen its summertime range shrink as a result of climate change.

"We know already the puffin is being impacted because its primary food sources are not as plentiful because of climate change", Lund said. "And so, we say at Audubon that the birds are telling us it's time to act".

"Audubon has a two pronged approach to taking on this issue", Urso says.
