This Climate is For the Birds -- NOT!

The world-famous Bharatpur bird sanctuary in western India is facing a shortage of birds because of severe water scarcity, officials say. Migratory birds visiting the area in Rajasthan state are down to only about 100 compared to some 10,000 last year. With so little water, many migratory birds are not nesting and are flying back to their areas of origin.
