Nearly twenty species of songbirds that nest in North Carolina have had a decline in population over the past two decades. Annual breeding bird surveys over that period confirm this. Birds affected include the cardinal, mockingbird, bluejay, towhee, and meadowlark. Habitat destruction is affecting not only state nesters but also those in tropical rain forests.
Rabbit populations are declining in North Carolina. A cooperative effort between the Department of Forestry at North Carolina State University and the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission seeks to determine why. Using sophisticated computers and telemetry, wildlife biologists seek to learn how rabbits use different kinds of cover and to estimate how well the necessities of life are met by the various kinds of habitat.
