grassland land birds banner
Grassland birds are declining at staggering rates across the United States. At the November MAS meeting, Jessie Birckhead, Conservation Coordinator for the NC Chapter of The Nature Conservancy, will address challenges facing grassland birds in agricultural landscapes in her presentation “Conserving Breeding Habitat for Grassland Birds in a Changing Agricultural Landscape". She will share stories of projects working to accommodate breeding grassland bird habitat in North Carolina and beyond.
So join us on Thursday, October 2nd at 7:30 PM at the Tyvola Senior Center (2225 Tyvola Rd.).

In a comprehensive, first-of-its kind study of how climate change could affect the ranges of 588 North American birds, National Audubon scientists report that 314 species will lose more than half of their current climatic range by 2080. Using three decades of citizen-scientist observations from the Audubon Christmas Bird Count and the North American Breeding Bird Survey along with internationally recognized greenhouse gas emissions scenarios, they mapped where each bird's ideal climatic range may be found in the future as the climate changes. These maps serve as a guide to how each bird's current range could expand, contract, or shift across three future time periods.
Read about the report and explore the impact on individual species.
