Fact sheets on threatened and migratory birds

Continuing the series of educational materials for schools in the Americas, two poster-sized fact files highlight two very different migratory strategies. The first focuses on Swainson’s Hawk, showing key sites on its route while the second looks at the Buff-breasted Sandpiper, a Near Threatened species, unique among shorebirds.

The fact file on the Swainson's Hawk is part of a series of educational materials produced for the World Bird Festival in the Americas. Materials are available in Spanish and English

A single Buff breasted sandpiper has been feeding in a field of cows since the 12th October 2010 to the present date. Place:Etu-Viikki, Vanhakaupunginlahti reserve, Helsinki, Finland. Very tame unringed little sandpiper. No pesticides used here!
