The Common Cuckoo is another enigma of a super-long distance migrant who commences a journey in the Steppes in Central Asia towards the Indian Peninsula and halting at the Socorro Plateau at Goa to recharge its protein reserves with a caterpillar diet before embarking on a daunting non stop leap over the Arabian Sea to make landfall across at Somalia or thereabouts before feasting again on the grasslands of the Savanaah across Africa. However the outlook right now looks bleak for the bird, its species and perhaps for the rest of wildlife at Socorro and across the globe. Could it be that humans cant see beyond their nose and pursuit of self interest is the only objective left in a bleaker future?
Carolina chickadee (Poecile carolinensis) The Greek word ποικίλη (“poikile”) means “many-colored.” You’ll see this species in feeding flocks that roam within a fairly large area. Despite being a flocking species, they tend to space themselves fairly widely while eating. #carolinachickadee#rva
Venezuela, Colombia y Panamá comparten esta hermosa ave. De un canto suave y melodioso, es por esta razón que es capturada para mantenerlo en las casas, como ave de jaula. Se alimenta mayormente de insectos y algunos frutos.
