As climate change puts increasing pressure on the world’s bird populations, we can all help from our homes to provide life-sustaining feed to birds caught by unreliable and shifting seasons, drought, wildfires, and any manner of changing world climate conditions. Some species may adapt if they have enough transition time, others may not.
In the meantime, we can all help by putting out and maintaining feeders in suitable seasons and conditions. Farmers can leave two or three rows of unharvested crops at the edge of the field for birds to find over the winter. Even table scraps can be useful for some species.
Serious population and species reductions have been projected; like up to a two- thirds decline in some bird numbers in some parts of the planet. Species types, too, will be seen where they never may have been before, as these move to more comfortable environments. Others may not be seen in some areas again…
