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 — HOODED WARBLER — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

BIRD OF THE WEEK

ABC

HOODED WARBLER

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Setophaga citrina 
POPULATION: 5.2 million
TREND: Increasing
HABITAT: Breeds in the understory of mature hardwood forests and wooded swamps; winters in lowland areas of the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America.

The Hooded Warbler is territorial on its wintering grounds in the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America, fiercely defending a defined feeding area against others of its species. Males and females use different habitats during the winter; males use mature forests and females frequent shrubby and flooded areas.

Female Hooded Warbler, Mark Johnson

Like American Redstarts, Hooded Warblers constantly flick their tails open and closed as they work their way through the forest, flashing their white outer tail feathers. This “flashy” habit may startle insects out of hiding, making them easy prey for the bird. Hooded Warblers tend to feed low in the understory, gleaning insects off the ground or darting after them flycatcher-style.

The Hooded Warbler’s cheerful, ringing song, “tawee-tawee-tawee-tee-o,” often gives the bird’s presence away before it can be seen, especially since spotting the bird in its thick, dimly lit habitat is sometimes difficult.

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.
