Climate change spells trouble for baby tree swallows

As climate change worsens, spring temperatures come earlier in the year, cueing tree swallows to build their nests sooner.

They’re thinking, OK, it’s a good time to breed, to lay my eggs,” said Lily Twining of the Max Planck Institute for Animal Behavior in Germany.
