A New Impulse on SueTy!
Apolinar's Wren activity, next to Lake Tota
Dear donors and supporters,
From this September and lasting some months, we are having a new impulse on our project SueTy or "Save Endangered Apolinar's Wren w/ Art & Education": Two volunteers are coming to give us a hand in preparing a last phase of our project, aiming to work on producing the videography component, with the children of Guáquira School.
In previous weeks we have been working with them at discussing logistics and ways to carry on with our planned project, despite all the pandemic obstacles. And we have agreed on a plan to follow, waiting only for them to travel and meet up with us this coming month.
Meanwhile, we had a new monitoring of our beloved Cistothorus apolinari species (Apolinar's Wren) around Lake Tota, and happily we can report we found a few individuals in a good shape and... for the very first time we were able to find a nest of this bird, something particularly rare considering its peculiar habitat and endangered conservation status. A short post about all this was published here.
New monitoring rounds will come by the end of this year, and we will keep uploading its correspondent checklists on eBird and gathering them in the species' website we designed for it - here: https://a1.abctota.org/home
