Birds of SW MT & the Changing of Our Climate
January 23 @ 6:00pm
Birds of Southwest Montana and the Changing of Our Climate Workshop
What are scientific models predicting for birds and climate change in Southwest Montana?
“You often hear of climate change being all doom and gloom, but one of the findings is that in winter especially, parks are going to become more important sanctuaries for birds,” says Audubon Society avian biologist Joanna Wu. Some birds may even stop migrating if winters are mild enough that they can tolerate local conditions, says Wu.
Sacajawea Audubon Society’s Birds of Southwest Montana and the Changing of Our Climate Workshop will look at 5 birds in Southwest Montana and the challenges they have, with regards to patterns of migration or breeding in Montana. What healthy habitats do these migrating and breeding birds need? A dangerous myth is that we simply can’t solve the effect of the changing of our climate. That is not true. We will look at what we can do to shape the future of our Bird-friendly Communities.
