Tipping Point Species: Birds in decline
The 2022 State of the Birds report is the first overall assessment of the nation’s birds since a 2019 Science study indicating the United States and Canada have lost more than 3 billion birds in the past 50 years. “We're basically watching the process of the sixth mass extinction,” says Marra, who is a co-author of the 2019 paper.
According to a new study, North America is home to nearly three billion fewer birds today compared to 1970—that’s more than 1 in 4 birds that have disappeared from the landscape in a mere half a century. 1 in 4 birds just gone!
