GOOD NEWS FOR BRAZILIAN BIRD

CHERRY-THROATED TANAGER

The critically endangered Cherry-throated Tanager, which numbers as few as 30 individuals, has gained a much-needed refuge in Brazil’s threatened Atlantic Forest. The 4,171-acre (1,688-hectare) private natural heritage reserve, not yet named, protects essential habitat and provides a lifeline for the species

The Cherry-throated Tanager went unseen for more than 50 years and was believed to be extinct in the wild until 1998, when it was sighted again in privately held, well-preserved forest patches in the Caetés region of Espírito Santo. Protecting every possible acre is important in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, where only about 10 percent of original habitat remains.

BIRD OF THE WEEK

McCown’s Longspur

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Rhynchophanes mccownii
POPULATION: 950,000
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Shortgrass prairie; also found in tundra and other open areas.

The clear, sweet voice of McCown’s Longspur rings out in the wide-open spaces of the Great Plains, joining with other prairie birds to create a symphony of song.

McCown’s Longspur has lost 4 percent of its population per year over the last 50 years, resulting in a cumulative loss of 88 percent, according to the North American Breeding Bird Survey.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — GREAT CURASSOW — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

 

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,400 members and over 85,000 photos and videos.

Great Curassow

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Crax rubra
POPULATION: 6,700 – 40,000
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Undisturbed tropical forests.

The Great Curassow is a big bird, about the size of a domestic turkey, and is prized by local people for its meat. Overhunting and habitat loss have made this species quite shy. A good look at a male Great Curassow reveals a handsome bird with glossy black plumage and a crest of forward-curling feathers.

This species is the largest and most northerly occurring of the mostly tropical curassow tribe, which includes the critically endangered Blue-billed Curassow of Colombia.
