How Can We Support Our Birds During These Wildfires?

Posted on 09/20/2020

News from California Audubon

Andrea Jones, Director of Bird Conservation at Audubon California
Joanna Wu, Avian Ecologist at National Audubon Society

Smoky days are degrading our air quality and the respiratory health of millions of people. Our hearts go out to those who have been displaced, lost a home, or loved one.

Many of you have asked how this impacts birds. Wildfires are posing a new stressor to birds who are already threatened by habitat loss, climate change, and pollution. Various species are on the move to escape the flames and migrate. However, many wild food sources and rest areas are scorched, leaving birds highly vulnerable. What can we do to help birds? During this crisis, we recommend taking two simple steps to help local and migrating birds stay clean and nourished: providing water and food.  (Cont.’d on the TNC’s GREENSPACE resource page HERE)
