Bird populations in decline

Recommended Posts

Looking at the bird stats from the official associations birds are in decline over the last 5 years.

People are quick to blame the "climate change bogey man" 

 

We are still waiting on the 2020 numbers. 

 

I was watching a documentary about over fishing called Seaspiracy and in there they point out how over fishing is killing off sea birds. That doesn't account for the deaths of other types of birds.

Bird populations have been falling since the 1970's at an increasing rate of decline due to vast areas of monoculture crops and most of all pesticides and herbicide...robbing them...and us...of a clean food supply.

Glass windows kill at least 2 to 3 billion birds annually.

 

Someone needs to patent a simple solution to this...some sort of mylar film or lamination that would appear cloudy on the outside and of course clear on inside....so that birds won't fly towards the reflection of trees and shrubs.
