收集羽毛尋松雞

anddear_news_B-02

英國只有少於一千隻西方松雞,而且全居於蘇格蘭。棲地減少及經常撞向防鹿欄等人為建設,是導致松雞數量下降的主要原因。科學家希望能收集更多資訊改變現有問題,所以找來義工幫忙,在凱恩戈姆山脈收集了八百多條雀鳥羽毛作研究,並成功辨認出西方松雞、環頸雉、金鵰等雀鳥。

There are less than 1000 capercaillies in UK, and all of them live in Scotland. their population is reducing because of habitat loss and fatal collisions with deer fences. Scientists want to collect more information to improve the situation, so they gathered volunteers to collect feathers in the pinewood forest of the Cairngorms. They were able to identify feathers of birds including capercaillies,  ring-necked pheasants and golden eagles.
