PetScoop: How Climate Change is Predicted to Affect North American Birds


More than half of the approximately 650 bird species in North America could be severely affected by climate change, scientists from the National Audubon Society predicted in a disturbing study cited in Climate Change Will Disrupt Half of North America's Bird Species, Study Says | NYTimes.com.

Ecosystems and food chains are being threatened and some species of birds could decline or even disappear. Populations may be forced to relocate and deal with unfamiliar predators. This article links to an interactive graphic.

On the bright side, Dr. Langham said, his report shows that many species will continue in their current abundance and, mostly, their current locations: American robins, red-tailed hawks, western scrub jays, western meadowlarks, northern cardinals and northern mockingbirds.

And at least one species, popular among poets and jilted lovers, is expected to flourish as warming takes its course, Dr. Langham said. "You want to know what climate change sounds like?" he asked. "It's the sound of a mourning dove -- their climate potential is going to increase."

Other species may or may not be able to adapt.

Plastic has been a boon to mankind, no doubt about it, but sometimes we yearn for something a little more natural. We can keep our caged birds happy with all-natural wood products too.

Ant Guard for Bird Feeders


Ants. Estimates are that ants number at least 1.5 million for every human being on Planet Earth. Somehow we are not surprised. It would be one thing if they kept to themselves, but often we see them crawling all over bird feeders and pet dishes outdoors where they don't belong.

This red Ant Guard for Bird Feeders helps keep those pesky ants away from your hanging bird feeders. It easily mounts in-line with hanging bird feeders. Especially good with hummingbird feeders filled with ant-attracting sweet nectar.

Hot New Bird Book Release -- The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Caesar by Martin Windrow


Here at Super Cool Pets we were surprised to hear the other day that pet birds such as parakeets, cockatiels, parrots are considered "exotic pets".

We understand that category for reptiles such as snakes and lizards, along with other normally wild animals such as rabbits, ferrets, mice, but birds and even fish?

So how about choosing an owl for a companion?

In The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Caesar: Living with a Tawny Owl British military historian Martin Windrow tells the tale of his 15 year live-in relationship with a tawny owl he named "Mumble" who became his closest companion. Fascinating!
