The Trumpeter Swan. The American white pelican. The common loon. The mallard duck. The bald eagle. The Baltimore oriole. These are just 6 of the 166 bird species in Minnesota whose survival is threatened by climate change. In 2015, the National Audubon Society produced the report “Birds and Climate Change”, which stated “Nearly half of the bird species in the continental U.S. and Canada are seriously threatened by 2080, and without action, many are at risk of extinction.”
Monica Bryand, a St Paul birder and photographer has looked into the situations of birds species native to Minnesota and will share stories and photos about them at a forum Tuesday July 11 at 7 pm at Maple Grove Library. The title of the presentation is “Birds Are Telling Us It’s Time To Act! Climate Endangered Birds of Minnesota”.
