Bird Species in Decline

Be like the bird,
who halting in his flight on limb too slight,
feels it give way beneath him,
yet sings knowing he hath wings.~~Victor Hugo

I've heard some disturbing news from Britain. According to this article by Louise Gray of The Telegraph, some of British well-known birds are in danger of dying out. The species that have seen a dramatic fall in their populations are cuckoo, turtle dove, grey partridge and corn bunting. There are reports announcing bird species all over the world are threatened. Main reasons for the decline is believed to be agriculture, logging (habitat destruction) and invasive species.

Birds can also be seen as barometer of how the state of nature really is. Declining bird populations is a really bad sign about the state of nature in general.

I hope we are able to stop this decline as birds are a very important part of the nature. Just think about going for a walk in the woods without hearing any bird chirps. That would be a very sad day.
