CACTUS WREN — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

PLASTIC FREE NEW ZEALAND

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 102,000 photos and videos. 

CACTUS WREN

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Campylorhynchus brunneicapillus
POPULATION: 3.1 million in United States; Mexican population likely as large.
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Resident in desert and arid scrublands from the southwestern United States to central Mexico.

The Cactus Wren is the largest wren found in the United States — about the size of a Spotted Towhee. Its curious nature and loud, chattering calls make this bird one of the most well-known species of the southwestern desert.

The Cactus Wren’s genus name Campylorhynchus derives from the Greek words for “curved beak.” Its species name brunneicapillus is formed from the Latin words for “brown” and “hair,” referring to this bird’s brown cap and back.

Nigerian refugees struggle in aftermath of Boko Haram attacks:

UNHCR calls for urgent support for more than 35,000 people who fled a surge in militant attacks, and now face acute needs in Cameroon’s remote desert north.

Violence has been ongoing in northeast Nigeria since the Boko Haram insurgency erupted in 2009, forcing more than 2.5 million people from their homes within the Lake Chad Basin in a desperate search for safety.

Cameroon. Violence in Nigeria drives thousands across border

As the insurgency grinds on, thousands have been displaced several times within Nigeria itself, while thousands of others like Blama Tchama, have sought safety over the border on numerous occasions.

The MNJTF, which includes forces from Cameroon, Chad, Nigeria, Niger and Benin, aims at countering Boko Haram and preventing other insurgent groups from gaining ground across the Lake Chad region.

BIRD OF THE WEEK

RED-SHOULDERED HAWK

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Buteo lineatus
POPULATION: 1.6 million
TREND: Stable
HABITAT: Deciduous or mixed forests, often near clearings and water; swamps.

The Red-shouldered Hawk is named for its reddish upper wing coverts, or shoulders. The lineatus in its name means “striped” in Latin, referring to its black-and-white-banded tail and finely barred reddish breast. Another distinctive field mark: translucent wing crescents, or “windows,” near the base of the wingtips, visible when the bird soars or glides overhead.

This attractive raptor is smaller and slimmer than the more widespread Red-tailed Hawk, almost resembling an accipiter such as the Cooper’s Hawk.
