Old Growth Forests Protect Birds

Too Bad Not Much Old Forest Remaining

Complex, old-growth forests may protect some bird species in a warming climate,
Oregon State University, December 15, 2017.

"Wilson's warbler...declining at a rate of about 2 percent per year in the Pacific Northwest."

"The hermit warbler...declining in landscapes with low amounts of old-growth forest."

The birds and forests are going down in lockstep. The first cause is simple: we cut down the forests. We've "developed" a huge bird range loss. The second factor bringing down forests & their resident birds are the changes in the timing and temperatures of the seasons.

We are experiencing catastrophic changes in forest and bird life, any way you look at it.
