BIRD OF THE WEEK

PERUVIAN DIVING-PETREL

At first glance, the Peruvian Diving-petrel is small — only about the length of an American Robin — and has a dark-and-light color pattern common to many other seabirds such as the Hawaiian Petrel and Townsend’s Shearwater. Unlike petrels and shearwaters, though, diving-petrels are more aquatic than aerial, spending most of their time swimming.

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Pelecanoides garnotii
POPULATION: At least 75,000
IUCN STATUS: Endangered
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Near-shore ocean waters; nests on small offshore islands

SIERRA CLUB — PROTECTING FLORIDA’S RIVER OF GRASS — PLANET EARTH IN SEPIA group

South Florida’s Biscayne aquifer is the primary source of drinking water for more than six million Sunshine State residents. Due to its surface proximity, the aquifer interacts with rainwater and other bodies of water, making it vulnerable to surface contaminants. So it would be really sensible to drill for oil in the Everglades, a recharge zone for the aquifer, right? Wrong!!

That’s the argument that local activists and elected officials have been making since July 2015, when Kanter Real Estate LLC applied for a permit for exploratory drilling on some of the 20,000 acres it owns in the Everglades. It’s located in a Water Conservation Area being restored under the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan, passed by the US Congress in 2000 and still in effect.

BIRD OF THE WEEK

AUDUBON’S ORIOLE

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Icterus graduacauda 
POPULATION: Fewer than 5,000 in U.S., but most of range is in Mexico.
TREND: Decreasing 
HABITAT: Riparian and live-oak woods.

Formerly known as the Black-headed Oriole, the flashy but furtive Audubon’s Oriole is one of North America’s two yellow-and-black orioles. (The other is Scott’s Oriole, also found in the U.S. Southwest and Mexico.) Audubon’s Oriole, like the Green Jay, is a species sought after by birders visiting Texas’ Lower Rio Grande Valley.

Although as brightly colored as a Green Jay or Painted Bunting, this large oriole can be a challenge to spot. Bright yellow is often difficult to distinguish amid green foliage, and unlike the more familiar Baltimore Oriole, Audubon’s Oriole tends to remain deep under cover, where it is more often heard than seen.

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.
