Climate change bad news for most birds

PARIS (AFP) – Birds in Europe are already feeling the heat from climate change, with three species suffering reduced ranges or population for every one that benefits from warming, said a study published Wednesday.
Researchers found a strong match between data collected over decades from a continent-wide monitoring network and computer models forecasting the impact of global warming.
"Although we have only a very small actual rise in global average temperatures, it is staggering to realise how much change we are noticing in wildlife populations," said lead author Richard Gregory of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds in Britain.
"If we don't take our foot off the gas now, our indicator shows that there will be many much worse effects to come."
