In case someone did not see this article on the radio tagged whimbrel, I am sharing the good news with link below.
I was googling what happens to hummingbirds during a hurricane. Sounds like there are stories of them being tough and surviving, but I am more concerned for the endemic species in the Caribbean, such as the Cuban Bee Hummingbird and their already stressed and fragile habitat. I know Cuba got slammed almost as bad as Puerto Rico. Does anyone know? http://content.usatoday.com/communities/sciencefair/post/2011/08/bird-survive-rough-ride-through-hurricane-irene/1 Sent from my iPhone -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://email@example.com/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
