The rising level of noise in urban areas, especially traffic noise could see a decrease in the number of some species of songbirds.
Researchers from Canada surveyed 113 different sites and found that the number of species appeared to be lower in areas where noise levels were higher.
They suggest that noisy environments masked the sound of the bird song and if females could not hear the lower frequencies, potentially they would not mate and the number of offspring would decrease.
