There are a number of reasons why peacocks are at risk of becoming extinct in the wild, and many of them are linked to the impact of climate change.
The most obvious, which is reflected in the lack of peacock nesting in some areas, is the impact on food and habitat.
The number of birds that nest in some parts of the United States has fallen from an average of about 500 per year in the 1970s to fewer than 100 a year now, according to a report by the National Wildlife Federation.
Some peacock species have even lost their nests, with the species’ population plummeting by as much as 50 per cent over the past 40 years.
There is also evidence that the extinction of the endangered Pied pheasant has been accelerated by climate change, with its population dropping by 40 per cent since 1970.
And it is not just bird populations that are suffering.
The population of the great white stork, which has long been the world’s most threatened bird, is estimated to be around 70 per cent smaller than it was 50 years ago.
The decline of the bird has resulted in the deaths of up to 90 per cent of its breeding population, with only a few surviving in breeding groups.
And the birds are not the only species at risk from climate change and climate-induced changes.
There are also fears that the number of waterfowl species that have already disappeared will increase in the coming decades.
Researchers at the University of California, Davis, have calculated that in the United Kingdom alone, waterfarms are being replaced by farms and plantations, and that the total number of species will fall by more than 60 per cent by 2050.
Some of these species, such as the great tit, are at greater risk from warmer temperatures and are particularly sensitive to the impacts of climate, with their numbers declining at an alarming rate.
A survey of more than 3,000 waterfarmed birds in Scotland, led by the University at Bournemouth, found that many of the birds were not even aware of the climate change problem, and only a third of them were even aware that they were pollinating a food crop.
They are also at risk because they are being hit by waterfarming methods that cause more pollution than traditional farming methods, such and artificial ponds and wetlands.
And in the UK alone, more than a quarter of all waterfodder is produced in aquaculture, where animals are raised on ponds and other artificial facilities, and then sold to supermarkets, where they are sold to customers.
The problems are particularly acute for birds in the Arctic, where temperatures have been falling rapidly for decades.
The effects of the melting of the Arctic ice are causing a lot of birds to go to the sea, where the weather is changing.
This has meant that they have been losing their habitats, and also they are facing higher numbers of parasites and diseases that they are not protected against, such, for instance, the common cold.
And then there is the climate impact on birds in Europe.
The collapse of sea ice in the southern European Union has meant there is less of it for birds to hunt in the sea.
And as a result, they have less food to eat and are more susceptible to diseases.
A study by the US Department of Agriculture found that the overall food consumption of birds in Sweden has decreased by up to 70 per of the total, while the number and distribution of their nesting sites has also decreased.
The researchers said the results were similar for the UK, where it was estimated that the loss of sea cover would result in a decline in the number, number of and distribution locations of the most common bird species, as well as the numbers of birds nesting in their area.
There was a similar impact in Germany, where birds were losing a lot more of their habitat as sea ice melted and the water temperatures increased.
So, the effects of climate on the number birds that are nesting are not just a concern for birds, but also for people and wildlife.
If climate change were to stop the warming that is already happening, we could see the populations of many other species go up.
It would be good to see these changes in the bird world, because they would bring much needed conservation to the birds and other wildlife that live in these areas.
And as well, it would make it much easier for people to conserve waterfarm animals that are currently being targeted by the commercial farming industry, because there would be fewer people to hunt them.
But the most important thing to remember is that, while these impacts are going to affect the birds, they will not be the only ones that are going through them.
For now, the birds in their habitats will continue to be threatened, but if we don’t do something to slow down this trend, the species will likely be gone in just a few decades.
