  • Challenge Question #2

    In response to your question, neotropical birds leave the tropical
    climate of South America, and the Caribbean due to the fact the food
    resources that were present in this region are dwindling because of the
    large body of migratory birds that are present along with the birds that
    live in this area all year long. Once the migratory birds recognize the
    problem that is present in their territory, they take flight for North
    America. This is caused due to the fact that the birds know that the
    winter climate that has taken hold of the United States, and Canada is
    receding, and that the food resources are climbing. Also they know the
    temperature is rising, making a perfect climate for the birds.
