Pesticide is confusing migratory birds
#1
https://www.theguardian.com/environment/...arch-shows

It's the neonicotinoids that are known to mess with insects. «The world’s most widely used insecticide may cause migrating songbirds to lose their sense of direction and suffer drastic weight loss, according to new research. [...] Birds were given doses equivalent to less than a single corn seed and within hours became weak, developed stomach problems and stopped eating. They quickly lost 17-25% of their weight, depending on the dose, and were unable to identify the northward direction of their migration. “Basically, these birds became lost,” said Morrissey. Control birds that were not exposed to the insecticide were unaffected»

Pesticides are wreaking havoc all over.
