This is for the birds

More depressing climate change news on bird migration:

An Audubon Society study to be released Tuesday found that more than half of 305 birds species in North America, a hodgepodge that includes robins, gulls, chickadees and owls, are spending the winter about 35 miles farther north than they did 40 years ago.

So if it’s getting warmer farther north, will climate change impacts be reduced by US snowbirds having to drive shorter distances to find sunshine? Could be a lot less RVs clogging up I-95 South to Florida.
