Formerly Migratory Birds Staying Put, Mating This Month In Finland - AFP
Finland's exceptionally warm December has confused migratory birds on their way south for the winter and encouraged other birds to sing and mate as if it were spring, experts said on Friday.

"Some of them (migratory birds) did not even leave because early winter was so warm and probably some of them first went south and came back," Lauri Haenninen, spokesman for environmental group Birdlife Finland, told AFP.

Skylarks, starlings and lapwings that usually head to warmer and more southerly climbs have been most affected by the mild weather. "They should leave when the weather is colder," Haenninen said.

Blackbirds have started singing and ducks, also confused by the warm winter, are mating several months before they normally search for partners.

1. Oh my God...
What the "Eff" does it take to convince the maniacs in control of key governments and those others who are more concerned with making money, never considering that they won'thave anything to buy or sell without air to breathe, clean food and access to potable water.

These animals aren't in on some RW idea of false conspiracy of Global warming.
