BIRD OF THE WEEK — ‘I’IWI — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 99,000 photos and videos. 

BIRD OF THE WEEK 

‘I’IWI

Like so many island species, the ‘I’iwi is beautifully adapted to the plants that share its evolutionary history. Its long, downward-curving bill is specialized for sipping nectar from tubular flowers.

I'iwi, Michael Walther, Oahu Nature Tours

ABC’s Hawai’i Program is working with the Hawai’i Division of Forestry and Wildlife and other partners on forest restoration projects — including the species’ preferred ‘ohi’a, koa, and mamane trees — on the Big Island and Maui. These projects improve habitat conditions for ‘I’iwi and other threatened forest birds, such as Palila and Maui Parrotbill.

Oreo maker linked to destruction of orangutan habitat for palm oil in Indonesia.

Palm oil suppliers to snack food giant Mondelez have destroyed almost 25,000 hectares of orangutan habitat in Indonesia in just two years, new mapping analysis by Greenpeace International has revealed.

Mondelez is one of the world’s largest buyers of palm oil, which it uses in many of its best-known products, including Cadbury chocolate bars, Oreo cookies and Ritz crackers.

Tell Oreo to stop buying palm oil from rainforest destroyers. Tell them to drop Wilmar.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — DARK-EYED JUNCO — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

bird10PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 99,000 photos and videos.

BIRD OF THE WEEK

DARK-EYED JUNCO

ABC

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Junco hyemalis

POPULATION: Estimates vary widely, from 190 to 260 million

TREND: Decreasing

HABITAT: Breeds in high-elevation conifer and mixed woods. Winters in fields, parks, and yard.

All Dark-eyed Juncos have some features in common: white outer tail feathers that are especially conspicuous when the bird takes flight; darker upperparts contrasting a lighter belly; and a pale bill. But this bird can vary drastically in appearance depending on where one sees it. Some juncos have more reddish-brown on the back and sides, some sport a contrasting dark hood over the head and neck, and others show a gray-tinged belly or white bars on the wings.

"ark-eyed

Although initially lumped with the rest of the Dark-eyed group, the endemic Guadalupe Junco was again split into a distinct species in 2016. Another closely related species, the Yellow-eyed Junco, is resident in pine-oak highlands from southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico south through Mexican highlands to Guatemala.

Let's create the biggest sanctuary on Earth

More and more people within and outside of the tuna industry are finally realizing that their business depends on sustaining fish populations. To truly transform an industry riddled with ocean destruction and labor abuse, Thai Union and its global brands like Chicken of the Sea must stand up and fight for real reform in the industry.

They must stop using poorly regulated and destructive fishing methods that needlessly kill vulnerable marine wildlife. No one wants to buy tuna with a side of sea turtle or shark.
