BIRD OF THE WEEK — BLUE-EYED GROUND DOVE

With a population estimated at just 16 birds, the Blue-eyed Ground-Dove is one of the rarest birds in Brazil, a country that’s home to many rare species found nowhere else.

This small dove is named for its vivid blue eyes, which match the spots on its wings and contrast with the rest of its rich tawny and rufous plumage.

Rohingya refugee emergency at a glance.

Approximately 671,000 Rohingya refugees have fled targeted violence and serious human rights violations in Myanmar since August 2017. Many walked for days through the forest to reach safety in Bangladesh.

Six months on, the monsoon season is approaching and the risk of an emergency within the emergency is still looming. UNHCR, the Government of Bangladesh, and partners continue to work around the clock to provide protection and assistance to refugees, while also supporting host populations affected by the influx.

ABC

BIRD OF THE WEEK

PINE SISKIN

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Spinus pinus 
POPULATION: 35 million
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Coniferous and mixed forests, alder thickets, and brushy pastures.

The streaky brown Pine Siskin is a “goldfinch in disguise,” with only touches of the bright yellow plumage worn by its close relatives, the American Goldfinch and Brazil’s Yellow-faced Siskin. 

This species is one of the most common of the “winter finches,” a group of birds such as the Evening Grosbeak that sometimes wander far south of their usual wintering grounds.
