WHP Sites Celebrate Hummingbirds

Jardín Botánico de Cadeyreta introduces families to the birds
that find food and shelter in the garden.

International Migratory Bird Day celebrates the amazing migrations of birds across the Western Hemisphere and the Caribbean. In the United States, this event is usually celebrated in May, and in Latin America events begin in October. 

Hummingbird migrations are a big part of IMBD. In 2016, WHP partners joined the celebration at four sites: Jardín Botánico Regional de Cadeyreta, Jardín Etnobotánico, the University of Guadalajara, and Ahuacapan Turismo de Naturaleza.  Their activities included bird walks, presentations on bird migration and conservation, and  personal talks with members of the community. We hope these events continue and expand i n the years to come. 
Hummingbird Poster Update

The latest version of the WHP Poster.
Art by Ram Papish
In a previous newsletter we shared a draft of the WHP Hummingbird Poster. We have been hard at work to make the poster both aesthetically pleasing and informational. In addition to an eye-catching border, the poster back is packed with information about western hummingbirds and their preferred flowers. The finished product will be in both English and Spanish. With a few more finishing touches to go, the poster will be done and ready for distribution. 

Thanks to artist Ram Papish for his beautiful artwork.
