EL NIÑO'S EFFECTS ON BIRD MIGRATION PATTERNS
El Niño is a weather phenomenon that occurs every few years and affects global weather patterns.
It can cause changes in temperature, precipitation, and wind patterns.
These changes can affect bird migration patterns, as birds rely on weather cues to navigate.
During El Niño years, some bird species may migrate earlier or later than usual, or change their migration routes.
El Niño can also affect the availability of food and water for birds, which can impact their survival.
Researching the influence of El Niño on bird migratory patterns can aid in predicting and mitigating climate change implications on bird populations.
