Decline of Common Birds Forum

Recently the National Audubon Society reported that many common or widespread species are in decline due to development, changes in agriculture, and climate change. If you have questions about the report, there is now a place to ask them. McClatchy's Washington Bureau is holding a question and answer forum about the report. Answering questions will be:

Dr. Ken Rosenberg, Director of Bird Conservation Science at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, will answer your questions about the study, the science behind it and ornithology generally.

Warren P. Strobel, the foreign affairs correspondent for McClatchy's Washington Bureau and an avid birder, can answer questions about media coverage of birds, recreation birding and other natural/environmental issues.
The forum accompanies an article on the Audubon Society's findings.
