A million birds were killed due to pacific ‘blob’ heatwave

Cranes fly at sunset above the Hula Valley of northern Israel in January. Millions of birds pass through the area as they migrate south every winter from Europe and Asia to Africa. Some now stay in the Hula Valley for the entire winter.

Ten thousands of seabirds were found dead in the years 2015-2016. The study, published on Wednesday by the PLOS One scientific journal, found that the seabirds probably starved to death due to a 1,000-mile body of warmer water that affected the north-eastern Pacific between 2013 and 2016.

The fish-eating bird is thought to have fallen victim to the large flow of steadily increasing warm water, which led to thousands of seabirds wash away along the west coast of North America.

The deaths of these birds which took place between the summer of 2015 and the spring of 2016, are thought to have been caused by starvation due to the rise in temperature leading to diminishing their food supplies as warmer seas led to a shortage of fishes for the birds to feed on.
