Global warming is making birds smaller, according to new research from the Australian National University.
Climate change is being blamed because varieties of the same birds tend to be smaller near the equator and larger closer to the poles to help them conserve heat more efficiently.
A study of museum specimens found eight Australian species have reduced in size by between two and four percent over the past century.
It’s astounding that our instruments are so sensitive a 2 percent reduction in bird size can be detected amongst all the other influences. Birdmometers have apparently reached the pinnacle of modern mometry.
I’ve located what is purported to be an engineering diagram of a next generation birdmometer. I’m not sure how it works.
So first we had the Sheep, then it was fish and now they can detect that birds are shrinking all due to global warming caused by the fat Americans.
