RE: [CALBIRDS] RFI - Wintering Grounds of U.S. Neotropical Migrants
- I am not sure of the whereabouts of the list you mentioned, but if you are
interested I can send you a list of wintering migrants from Belize, as well
as some interesting factoids from the two years I operated a banding program
down there. I had a number of wintering migrants I caught in year two, same
individual, in the exact same net I caught them in the previous year. I
guess we all know about it, but actually holding a tiny bird in your hand
that you know flew several thousand miles north and came back to the same
spot since you last saw it kinda blows your mind.
I believe most of the western migrants winter toward the Pacific slope of
Mexico and Central America, though there are some records of, I believe,
both Townsend's and Hermit Warblers from Belize.

Subject: [CALBIRDS] RFI - Wintering Grounds of U.S. Neotropical Migrants
I am trying to put together an activity with my Spanish classes to
coincide with the International Migratory Bird Day event in May. I
remember seeing a chart, table or some kind of list somewhere that
has where our neotropical migrants go to during our winter. If I
remember correctly, it was separated by country. I'm gathering the
pieces together for my students to do a bilingual multimedia
presentation about the birds that migrate to or through Modesto, CA
from Spanish-speaking countries. I'd rather not have to go through
every bird and search out its wintering grounds one by one.
If you know of such a list somewhere, please let me know.
