Hurricane Dorian affects rare species of tropical birds. News about Hurricane Dorian and its various images from space is spreading, but what does it leave behind on the surrounding environment? Biologist Diana Bell of the University of East Anglia has warned that Hurricane Dorian may have killed one of the world’s rarest birds.

A Category 5 tropical storm, with winds of 185 miles per hour, has killed 20 people and destroyed thousands of homes in the Bahamas.

Experts fear that among tropical birds, brown-colored nuthatch, a small songbird found in pine forests throughout the southeastern United States, whose numbers have deteriorated since the 1960s, may have been completely wiped out by the hurricane.

A survey was conducted last year for fear that only two birds would survive on the Grand Bahamas Island. Dorian Category 5 typhoon landed in the Grand Bahamas on September 1, 2019, dominating the islands with winds of up to 185 mph.

After moving over the Bahamas, the tropical storm movement slowed significantly, but remained steady on Grand Bahama Island and Abaco Island in the area for about two days before its strength began to decline.

“It is likely that it may have left an environmental catastrophe affecting already fragmented areas in Caribbean pine forests that support tropical birds and other wildlife that are nowhere else on the planet”, said Diana Bell.
