#Birding & #Biodiversity in my #Backyard #Ontario #Birds #ClimateChange

Get Outside: Birding and bio-diversity in my backyard




Today was a beautiful day in Ontario and I spent it bird watching, listening to the sounds of nature. This woodpecker was one of the friends I made today. According to Nature Canada, climate change is affecting birds in many different ways. Climate change can "alter distribution, abundance, behaviour, and even the genetic composition" of birds, and it also affects their breeding and migration habits.





We all have the opportunity to lower our daily green house gas emissions and to reduce our waste by making different choices about how we live and how we act as consumers. All of these birds were in my backyard. I can't imagine a planet where I don't get to see this type of biodiversity in my own backyard.
