Hello everyone,

A paper was recently published that studies how a resident bird species,
the great tit, is now coming into direct conflict with the migratory pied
flycatcher, thanks to climate change. The study finds that warming
temperatures are causing these birds’ breeding periods to increasingly
overlap, thereby leading to deadly conflicts over nest cavities, which are
a limited -- and thus, precious -- resource. But the effects underpinning
this conflict are varied and subtle, and this study is particularly elegant.

I hope you find this study interesting, and that you share it widely
amongst your bird pals and other interested folks.

as always, thank you for reading.
