Thanks to Barbara Millikan for posting this news item. 

Today's New York Times article is based on a study by the American Bird Conservancy:

which in turn relies on data from the Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) and the Christmas Bird Count (CBC). 

If you've volunteered for either of those long-running efforts, thank you for your contributions, even though the news is grim. 

The scientific article giving the results can be found at:
