Great Tits Cope Well With Warming

I am NOT making this up! From the BBC:

At least one of Britain’s birds appears to be coping well as climate change alters the availability of a key food.

Researchers found that great tits are laying eggs earlier in the spring than they used to, keeping step with the earlier emergence of caterpillars.

Writing in the journal Science, they point out that the same birds in the Netherlands have not managed to adjust.


Well? What did you think the story would be about?

(Just waiting for someone to tell me the story just ain’t right without pictures!)
