Climate Change Effects: Hurricane Winds Threaten Bird Migration As Global Warming Makes More Storms

Climate change models predict more frequent hurricanes, and that could be a problem for the migrating birds that fly right into them.

Researchers focused on one particular Atlantic seabird, the sooty tern, and mapped the path they take while migrating every year using data from tagged birds over the last several decades. Comparing that to paths of hurricanes from the same timeframe showed an overlap.

“The route the birds take and that most Atlantic-forming hurricanes take is basically the same — only in reverse,” study leader Ryan Huang said in a statement from Duke University. “That means these birds, who are usually very tired from traveling long distances over water without rest, are flying head-on into some of the strongest winds on the planet.”
