BIRD OF THE WEEK

BLACK-EARED FAIRY

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Heliothryx auritus 
POPULATION: Unknown
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Humid lowland forests and forest edges.

The striking Black-eared Fairy occupies a large range across the tropical forests of South America. It’s one of the hummingbirds that caught the eye of 19th century American artist Martin Johnson Heade, whose paintings of this and other species can now be seen in museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This quick, bright green sprite has a contrasting snowy-white underside and black ear patches (auriculars), which give the bird its common name. The sexes are similar, but the female has a longer tail.

How Fracking Has Changed One Woman’s Life

Tachia Sandoval moved to Las Animas County, Colorado to find peace and beauty for her and her many animals. Then the fracking started.

A Must See Video.

 She came from Albuquerque to Las Animas County, Colorado in the 1990s, getting away from decades in the city to live on the land and get back to her country roots. She found a beautiful piece of land with a modest house that she made into the home of her dreams, a place for her and her many animals to roam, and some space to spend more time making the art and jewelry that give her life balance.

BIRD OF THE WEEK

WILSON’S SNIPE

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Gallinago delicata
POPULATION: 2 million
TREND: Stable
HABITAT: Marshy, open wetlands, bogs, tundra, and pond edge.

Wilson’s Snipe, named for famed American ornithologist Alexander Wilson, is a plump, long-billed shorebird that, like American Woodcock and Mountain Plover, is often found far from shorelines.

As this “Common Snipe” video indicates, Wilson’s Snipe was once considered a subspecies of Common Snipe, an Old World species. Wilson’s was recognized as a distinct species in 2003 based on number of tail feathers and other morphological and vocal differences.
