This chapter takes advantage of current and historic data to explore changes in the composition of ten Wisconsin bird communities over the past 55 years (1950–2004) and interpret those changes in light of what is known about the birds themselves and their environment. Although species richness in most of those communities has increased over the past several decades, changes in individual species varied a lot, with some showing long-term declines and others increases. Bird communities will continue to change into the future, driven by shifts in climate, land use, and changing landscape patterns.
