It wasn’t long ago I could hear a variety of prairie birds’ singing when I ventured out to a prairie. Lately I noticed… silence.
I learned that we actually lost over 50% of prairie birds (720 million) since 1970. In fact, we lost 3 billion birds since 1970 (https://www.3billionbirds.org/findings).
If you feel you haven’t seen many birds these days, it is because we did lose so many of them. Out of all, prairie birds are at the highest decline.
Please help prairie birds by supporting the Missouri Prairie Foundation’s mission to protect habitats!
