      In early spring, the rain came. And when the birds should have been
      making and feeding babies, they were instead found dead.

      "It was the birds that were the first harbingers of this whole
      problem," said Bill Peterson of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
      Administration, which set up the Seattle meeting.

      At the same time, researchers recorded low catches of juvenile salmon
      and rockfish, and there were sightings of emaciated gray whales. Those
      findings were preceded by the first appearance in Washington waters of
      thousands of squid normally not found north of San Francisco. And a
      plankton typically found near San Diego bloomed along Northwest
      beaches.

      Scientists say to expect more of the same as the planet warms and
      weather patterns are altered.
