Article on Mississippi Kite neglects to mention climate change

From the Audubon Climate Report (Mississippi Kite)
This raptor breeds across the Gulf States and Audubon's climate model projects that the kite will lose 88 percent of its current summer range by 2080. However, its climatic limits will also dramatically expand northward. The diffusion of its potential summer range may cause problems for a species that often nests colonially. Yet, the species has already demonstrated a capacity for expanding its breeding range into new areas in the past few decades.
