The ability of animals to adapt to sustained and rapid environmental change is crucial for the long term persistence of many species. Many animals are known to be capable of adjusting nesting behaviour adaptively across environmental gradients and in line with seasonal changes, and this existing plasticity potentially facilitates adaptation to anthropogenic climate change. However, whilst alterations in nesting phenology, site selection and design may facilitate short term adaptations, the ability of nest building animals to adapt over longer timescales is likely to be.
