      California Birds in a Changing Climate

      As our climate changes, the entire web of life must adapt or perish. If a flower blooms earlier due to increased temperatures, insects that depend on that flower must hatch earlier, and birds that consume those insects must arrive from their spring migration earlier. Whether birds will be able to adapt to this change is uncertain. National Audubon has determined that 50% of birds will be threatened by climate change. During this program, Dr. Wendy Schackwitz will explain the science behind this research and provide a set of actions that you can take to help climate-threatened birds. She will discuss how Citizen Science projects such as Breeding Bird Surveys and Christmas Bird Counts were used to identify bird population trends.

      In a follow-up workshop the next morning at 8am, she will provide a set of actions that you can take to help climate-threatened birds. She will detail two new Citizen Science projects, Bird Seasons and Climate Watch, which are improving our understanding of these trends.
