Makes me really sad... Most of the biodiversity in the Northern Hemisphere is struggling at the moment because of the changing conditions.

Owls in particular have a pretty special place for me though so I'm pretty depressed by this news.

Aww. Poor birddy.

I always did love the way owls look, especially those ones.

We can only monitor them I suppose, nature is a funny thing sometimes.

are there any wind turbines in the area? highly doubtful "climate change" is a threat, however underground volcanoes can melt things. either way, mankind moves in, nature moves out. it's been like this for centuries now and it's not going to change. sure would have been nice to have seen a dodo bird in my existence (not a clone or a dusty old pile of bones/etc), but, looks like another one could go the way of the dodo if mankind doesn't step up and protect them.

Underground volcanoes...right. Sorry, but I’ll stick with the analysis of people who study these birds for a living.
