Magpies and Global Climate Change

Almost a year ago I wrote about the local Magpies and what they have been telling us about global climate change which, in the American Southwest, predominantly takes the form of warming temperatures.  In the canyon of the southern Rocky Mountains with which I am most familiar over the short span of my lifetime the Magpies had increased their range vertically by 1000 feet and horizontally by12 miles.

Make that 14 miles.

Last week we saw two Magpies almost two miles further up the Rocky Mountain canyon where our cabin sits.
