With temperatures expected to rise by 3 to 7 degrees Fahrenheit in the continental United States by 2075, and precipitation patterns expected to shift dramatically, birds will be contending with a lot of environmental factors. But that's not all. Sohl found that in addition to climate change, deforestation and urban growth were also very likely to change habitat ranges of birds in the United States. For some birds like the cactus wren and the Gambel’s quail, those impacts are likely to be positive. Both species, which live in the arid southwest, could see their habitat ranges expand by over 50 percent.
