Where Have All the Birds Gone?

Humanosity says…Although this article focuses on the US, the same is true for much of the world. We are a living through a mass extinction event and many scientists believe that we humans are the cause. Throw in climate change and it’s hard to remain optimistic about the future.

Since 1970, researchers and scientists have been collecting data on 529 bird species and have noticed a trend: certain populations have been in decline over the course of the last 48 years. In fact, NPR reports that around three billion birds have disappeared across a dozen species during this time.

In a study published in Science, researchers write that the population losses span several “North American avifauna” including birds that were once quite prevalent such as warblers and sparrows. Inversely, there are bird populations that are on the rise—mainly, birds of prey like the bald eagle and some waterfowl, including ducks and geese.
