Counting is Caring: Be a Part of the Great Backyard Bird Count

Cornell University

This year’s Great Backyard Bird Count begins on Valentine's Day, Friday, February 14, and continues through Monday, February 17. Volunteers from around the world count the birds they see for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count, and then enter their checklists at birdcount.org.

Newswise: Rethinking land conservation to protect species that will need to move with climate change

Rethinking land conservation to protect species that will need to move with climate change

University of Washington

A new study finds that many species of animals and plants likely will need to migrate under climate change, and that conservation efforts will also need to shift to be effective.

'The blob,' food supply squeeze to blame for largest seabird die-off

University of Washington

When nearly one million common murres died at sea and washed ashore from California to Alaska in 2015 and 2016, it was unprecedented — both for murres, and across all bird species worldwide. Scientists from the University of Washington, the U.S. Geological Survey and others blame an unexpected squeeze on the ecosystem's food supply, brought on by a severe and long-lasting marine heat wave known as "the blob."

Marine Heatwave Likely Caused Mass Starvation of Seabirds off the U.S. West Coast and Alaska

PLOS

Unprecedented numbers of common murres—North Pacific seabirds—died between 2015 and 2016. A new analysis lays out the scope of this event and suggests a potential culprit: severely reduced food supplies resulting from unusually elevated sea temperatures.

Study: Pig virus is easily transmitted among chickens and turkeys

Ohio State University

The first animal study of a pig virus’s potential to jump to another species shows that the virus, once introduced to a select group of birds, is easily transmitted to healthy chickens and turkeys.
