Everybody knows birds build nests. But researchers are now looking at the connection between nest behaviors and the survival and growth rates of Carolina Chickadees.
I hate to sing the blues about our nation’s songbirds, but after reporting the story about the concerns for the future of the Carolina Chickadee, I think I should.
That’s because scientists say that since the end of World War II, there has been a decline in the songbird population over much of the eastern United States. And that includes the Carolina Chickadee.
It’s not an even decline, which makes it difficult to pinpoint the exact cause.
