What is the impact of habitat loss on migratory birds?

    Habitat loss poses a significant threat to migratory birds, disrupting their natural cycles and survival. As development encroaches on critical habitats, birds lose essential breeding, feeding, and resting grounds. This loss hampers their ability to find sufficient food and safe places for nesting, leading to population declines. Fragmentation of habitats also increases the risk of predation and makes migration routes perilous. Conservation efforts are crucial to preserving the interconnected habitats necessary for the successful migration of these avian species.
