Timing of Life Changing with Changing Seasons

Birds Paying the Price

Hungry birds as climate change drives food 'mismatch,'
University of Exeter, April 23, 2018.

"...Warmer springs create a "mismatch" where hungry chicks hatch too late to feast on abundant caterpillars."

"...study spring emergence of oak tree leaves and caterpillars, and timing of nesting by three bird species: blue tits, great tits and pied flycatchers."

"Forests have a short peak in caterpillar abundance, and some forest birds time their breeding so this coincides with the time when their chicks are hungriest."
