Climate change is taking a harsh toll on the birds of North America, according to a grim report released Tuesday by the Audubon Society. Over the next 65 years, climate change will drive about half of the some 650 species living on the continent into smaller ranges to live, feed and breed. And for those species that can't adapt, extinction is looming.
"Common sense will tell you that with these kinds of findings, it's hard to believe we won't lose some species to extinction," David Yarnold, the president of the National Audubon Society, told The New York Times. "How many? We honestly don't know. We don't know which ones are going to prove heroically resilient."
So who are these affected species? Here's a selection of the 314 most-jeopardized species, and the trials they are already facing.
Bald eagles are losing ground - but hopefully will be gaining it back.
