Baby birds fleeing nests too early because of extreme heat in Oregon

Wildlife rescue professionals in Oregon have claimed over 100 baby birds have tried to escape their nest prematurely due to the heatwave engulfing the Pacific Northwest. Conservationists from Pendleton working at Blue Mountain Wildlife, a organisation committed to helping nature thrive, reported that most of the birds survived their falls but faced injuries. Tragically, 13 had to be put down. Most of those who tried to flee their nest too early were Swainson hawks and Coopers hawks.
