Bird species that pass through Northeast Ohio during migration or live here in spring and summer, are also found on Central and South American forested coffee plantations in the winter. Some, like the enchanting, tree-top loving Cerulean Warbler, are declining. One important reason is the habitat they depend on in Latin America is degrading or disappearing, much of it for agricultural use.
If you’ve bought Bird Friendly coffee from Western Cuyahoga Audubon, or just sampled a delicious cup at one of our events, you already know how good it tastes.

But over 25 bird species that pass through here during migration or live here in spring and summer, are also found on Bird Friendly coffee plantations in the winter.
Some, like the enchanting, tree-top loving Cerulean Warbler, are declining. One important reason is the habitat they depend on in Latin America is degrading or disappearing, much of it for agricultural use.
