Description: So how does your banding effort fit into the new paradigm of climate science? A little background: many bird populations underwent mass declines during the 19th century from a variety of causes including hunting and habitat change. Current human-induced climate change represents a new and fast-acting pressure that is inherently more difficult to curtail and may drive vulnerable bird populations to the brink of extinction. New problems often require creative tools and today' s scientists rely on a diverse array ofmethodologies to determine changes in bird populations including citizen science (e.g., eBird, breeding bird surveys and Christmas bird counts) and long-term banding stations.
