The Pacific wren, for example, which is non migratory along coastal Alaska and the Aleutian Islands, has figured out how to survive well in the winter. It feeds on spiders and other insects that live in woodpiles. But the birds that catch flying insects, such as flycatchers and warblers (which eat insects that live on leaves), must head off on their age old migratory journeys to find the right kind of food. species has its little ecological niche, says Irwin.
probably because it has to fly back to Africa every fall, it reaches a point where it just can migrate any further. migratory species haven moved between North America and Asia very much, and when they have they like the wheatear, which has just barely gotten into Alaska and the Yukon. Oddly enough, non migratory species like chickadees, ravens, crows, and jays move between the two continents quite easily. show there not a problem for birds to move between continents the forests are similar enough, says Irwin.
to know where these different species spend their winters so that, if we notice they in decline, we can look at whether the habitat in their wintering areas is in trouble. We trying to better understand patterns of migratory connectivity so we can contribute to conservation planning.
He found that 34 Yukon bird species originally came from eastern North America, including flycatchers, vireos, thrushes, warblers, and some finches and sparrows.
Irwin and his graduate students are studying related pairs of eastern and western birds that share a common ancestor, yet became different species when separated during past ice ages.
Inborn maps mean Yukon birds follow ancient migration routes
Understanding these migratory routes is also important for bird conservation, says Irwin. need Fendi Backpack Eyes
The winter wren, for example, is an easterner originally, while the Pacific wren came from the west. Another pair is the eastern mourning warbler and the western MacGillivray warbler.
it roughly a million years or more, says Irwin. Over those millennia, multiple cycles of glaciation and interglaciation, or ice free periods, meant that bird species expanded and retreated accordingly. the basic point is that in each case there was one ancestral species that at some point got split into two groups, and those two groups get more and more different, and eventually they get so different that they don interbreed, and then we would say they definitely separate species. these birds continue to follow the same ancient migratory routes their long ago ancestors did. Western species such as the MacGillivray warbler migrate down the west coast of North America and winter in southern Mexico. Both of these very different migratory routes take the birds around the Rockies and the deserts of the American West.
to that opsin, that could alter the colours we see, says Irwin. may be that when birds look in parallel to the magnetic field, they see a different colour than if they look perpendicular to it. third group of Yukon birds, including the bluethroat, the wheatear, and the eastern yellow wagtail, originally arrived from northeastern Asia and migrate even further afield all the way to southern Asia or Africa. all breed in the Yukon, but we at the very eastern edge of their range, which extends all across Alaska and Siberia and all across Europe in the case of the wheatear, says Irwin. wheatear migrates across Alaska, Siberia, and the Middle East into sub Saharan Africa, and then back again in the spring.

These migratory instincts are incredibly strong so strong that birds caught during migration and kept in a cage will tell researchers the direction in Fendi Iphone 6 Case Monster which they want to migrate. called migratory restlessness, explains Irwin. instinct to migrate is so intense they take little flights in the direction they want to migrate in. these ancient instincts are still not fully understood. Since the parents of migrants such as mourning warblers migrate south before the new fledglings do, young bird has to fly to Colombia without a map, never having been there before, says Irwin. they know how to do it. Their genes encode for this really amazing behaviour. number of studies show that the birds can somehow sense the magnetic field through vision. When light enters our eyes, the light excites an opsin molecule in the eye, which is how we see. there were a little magnetically sensitive molecule connected Fendi Crocodile Tote
in many ways the Yukon is more eastern origin in terms of forest birds than western, even though it up in the northwest part of the continent, says Irwin.
pairs have spent all this time separated by the ice and within the last 10,000 years or so have come into contact. Do they interbreed or not? Do they have different songs? Different appearances? Different migratory behaviour? We trying to use all that information to figure out how one species gradually splits into two species. bird pairs each evolved from one original species that existed before ice covered North America. Zoologists look at the DNA of these pairs and use what called a molecular clock to try to figure out how long ago they split.
No, there hasn been a sudden influx of Ontarians and Maritimers. Those inhabitants are birds, and their ancestors may have begun arriving at the end of the last ice age, over 10,000 years ago. who studies the migratory behaviour of birds and what those patterns tell us about bird origins in northwestern Canada.
species are all forest birds, and they followed the expansion of forests at the end of the last ice age, explains Irwin. were still ice bound, creating a formidable barrier.
