The Breeding Grounds:  The Breeding Grounds Loss or alteration of breeding habitat Cowbirds Slide14:  lay eggs in other birds’ nests host birds incubate cowbirds hatch before hosts and are larger cowbirds outcompete host young for food many host young either do not survive or fledge in poor condition female cowbird can lay 40-80 eggs in a season Cowbirds are obligate brood parasites The Breeding Grounds:  The Breeding Grounds Loss or alteration of breeding habitat Cowbirds Natural nest predators What’s for dinner? Slide16:  many predators, such as raccoons, patrol edges where two habitats come together some predators find and eat bird eggs and young other nest predators include crows, blue jays, rat snakes and other small mammals The Breeding Grounds:  The Breeding Grounds Loss or alteration of breeding habitat Cowbirds Natural nest predators Cats Slide18:  Keep your cat indoors if at all possible! Here, kitty-kitty!! Slide19:  The Wintering Grounds loss or alteration of winter habitat slash and burn techniques lead to deforestation hundreds of acres are cleared each day in tropical areas habitat is often cleared for agriculture Slide20:  Agriculture, such as sun coffee, creates problems for migrant and resident birds in tropical countries: sun coffee plantations support little in the way of insects needed by foraging birds agricultural tracts are often heavily treated with pesticides including DDT Slide21:  The Wintering Grounds loss or alteration of winter habitat human population growth Human population growth takes quality habitat from birds. Slide22:  Migration loss or alteration of stopover habitat stopover areas along coastlines have been altered or destroyed birds can’t rest and refuel after migration without stopover areas Slide23:  The Indigo Bunting is an example of a migratory bird that flies non-stop across the Gulf of Mexico during Spring and Fall migration. Slide24:  Migration loss or alteration of stopover habitat loss or alteration of travel corridors Birds often use riparian corridors during migration. Slide25:  The Prothonotary Warbler relies heavily on riparian areas during migration and breeding. Slide26:  Migration loss or alteration of stopover habitat lack of adequate food sources loss or alteration of travel corridors Pesticides and habitat loss often create a “food shortage” for migrating birds. Slide27:  Migration loss or alteration of stopover habitat lack of adequate food sources collisions with towers and buildings loss or alteration of travel corridors Slide28:  Millions of birds are killed each year when they run into buildings, towers and even aircraft. Slide29:  Migration loss or alteration of stopover habitat lack of adequate food sources collisions with towers and buildings loss or alteration of travel corridors storms Slide30:  Hurricanes and other strong storms can prove fatal to migrating birds.
