This is a very rare type of cloud luminescence, at least in the sky around PA, caught me off guard. This is the only time I’ve ever it wisping (or bleeding) off a cumulus cloud like that as far as I can remember, so it’s pretty cool.

Stresemann’s Bristlefront — Critically Endangered — PLANET EARTH FLOWERS group

All PLANET EARTH groups supports:

Greenpeace * United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) * American Bird Conservancy

PLANET EARTH FLOWERS has over 1,500 members and over 106,000 photos.

Stresemann’s Bristlefront — Critically Endangered

Estimated population: One known individual

IUCN Status: Critically Endangered

Location: Bahia State, Brazil

Perhaps the world’s rarest bird, only one Stresemann’s Bristlefront is known to survive in the wild. Unfortunately, this bird is confined to one of the most fragmented and degraded – and vulnerable – forests in the Americas.

After a 50-year disappearance, Stresemann’s Bristlefront was rediscovered in 1995. In 2007, ABC supported the creation of the Songbird Forest Reserve to protect its remaining habitat. However, following a severe drought and a series of fires in 2016, the bird once again disappeared. Efforts to re-locate the bird proved successful when a single female bristlefront was found in December of 2018.

Greenpeace is calling on the Government to follow the lead of the UK and declare a climate and environment emergency, after history making scenes in UK Parliament this morning saw MPs pass a motion to make the country the first in the world to do so.

It comes on the back of waves of climate protests that have hit the UK, which include hundreds of thousands of students going on strike from school, and thousands of people being arrested due to mass occupations as part of the Extinction Rebellion movement.

Scotland and Wales have also declared a climate emergency following protests there.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — IVORY-BILLED WOODPECKER — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 106,000 photos and videos.

BIRD OF THE WEEK

IVORY-BILLED WOODPECKER

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Campephilus principalis
POPULATION: Unknown
IUCN STATUS: Critically Endangered
TREND: Probably extinct
HABITAT: Hardwood swamps and pine forests.

The largest of its tribe in the United States, the impressive Ivory-billed Woodpecker was also called the “Lord God Bird,” after the typical reaction of people who saw it swoop into view. This charismatic species inhabited untouched bottomlands and swamps that once stretched across the southeastern United States.

The Ivory-billed Woodpecker was never a common bird, since it depended upon enormous, unbroken expanses of southern swamps providing the space and food it needed to thrive. Once its habitat began to disappear due to uncontrolled logging, the woodpecker became increasingly scarce. It was frequently shot by hunters and collectors, which likely contributed to its disappearance.
