In the wake of intense drought conditions in California's Central Valley, migratory birds suddenly find themselves without a place to rest and recover before the next leg of their journey. However, conservationists have rented thousands of acres of land, which are then flooded to provided temporary wetlands for these long-distance fliers.
Hundreds of bird species throughout the nation are growing more and more threatened by climate change, which continues to shrink their native habitats and push them into uncharted territory, according to a new National Audubon Society report released Monday.
Researchers have determined why some female magpies chicks are significantly more adventuresome than others. It may have a lot to do with the order in which they were laid, according to a new study.
Flapping baby birds, it turns out, have the innate ability to maneuver in midair, shedding light on the origin of flight, according to a new study.
Hummingbirds may have specifically evolved just to taste sweet nectar, as most other birds are only capable of tasting savory foods.
Birds and bats are introducing a surprising number of trees into new forests, a new study published in the journal PLOS ONE shows.
Certain sharks appear to confuse some recreational water users with birds, suggests a new case report that investigated a shark attack in the South Pacific.
A Syrian Brown Bear was recently caught on camera saving the life of what appears to be an injured black hooded crow. This, of course, has raised some questions as to why the bear didn't just eat the helpless bird.
The Audubon society reminded the state of Connecticut in a new report that its wide diversity of bird species is declining due to a lack of conservation efforts.
Researchers are suggesting that some dinosaurs likely survived the mysterious mass extinction of the Earth's prehistoric giant lizards because they had shrunk. Theropods, the dinosaur lineage that experts believe was the precursor to modern birds, were likely the only dinosaurs to shrink over time, according to a recent study.
The new Minnesota Viking's football stadium, with its large glass windows, could be a "death trap" for birds that fly through the area during their annual migration, the Audobon Society warned.
Experts have developed an experimental computer program that can accurately identify bird songs from hundreds of various tweets and chirps. This could potentially bring them closer to identifying the use and differences of these chirps, information that could be usefully in understanding language among all animals.
A newly discovered non-avian, four-winged dinosaur was an expert flier, according to scientists.
Although it would seem that warming temperatures associated with climate change would most greatly influence animal species like birds, a new study shows that precipitation is actually the key to bird adaptation.
