195 Years of Human Trash in Australian Birds Nests

Australian researchers have found over 195 years the construction of a bird’s nest has been changing, from twigs and branches to now human trash such as plastic, wires and even headphone cords. It is clear the use of debris is reflected in the changes of society over the years, highlighting the ways Australians have impacted the environment and put our native species in danger.
