Migration Mysteries: Variation in Migration Distances for North American
Short-distance Migrants Under Climate Change

Under climate change, bird ranges are tending to shift toward the poles.

There are good reasons to believe that winter ranges might be shifting at
the same rate of speed as are breeding ranges. Her lab is testing this
assertion with long-term data for short-distance North American migrants.
They found a diversity of responses, and a few surprises!
