What is Smithsonian Certified Bird Friendly Coffee? By Amanda Sebrosky, WCAS Board Member
Shade-grown coffee benefits the farmers because trees on shade-grown coffee plantations have a lifespan double that of trees on plantations of sun-grown coffee.
The July 2nd Sat bird walk started with a sprinkle of rain, but ended with the sun shining. There were seven observers, obeying all COVID protocols. We tallied forty species. Highlights were a Red-tailed Hawk being "mobbed" by Red-eyed Vireos, a Ruby-throated Hummingbird and an American Redstart.
The July 2019 Second Saturday bird walk "included 24 observers. It was sunny with the temperature starting at 74 degrees and ending at 82 degrees. We had 44 species and one unidentified gull. A well marked Red-tailed Hawk flew over." What will we see in 2020?
