    This species nests on the ground, and the nest is usually impossible to see until you’re right on it.  So best to use caution when clearing or pruning groundcover during nesting season.  Unfortunately, free-roaming cats are easily able to find these nests; populations have declined 63% since the ’60s.  It’s no coincidence that as the human population continues to boom, most other species are either in decline or near extinction.

    One easy way to protect wild bird populations is to teach kittens to be indoors and never let them roam outside without supervision.
