February 18, 2022: Bird Banding at the Kiekari Bird Observatory, en Veracruz, México presented by Alan Monroy.
Kiekari Bird Observatory is a bird monitoring and MoSI station located in Xico, Veracruz, Mexico, at the foothills of the Gulf of Mexico slope, along one of the most important migration corridors in the Americas. Since its inception in 2018, the station has documented more than 220 species in an area of only 5 hectares (12 acres). Endangered species such as the Bearded Wood-partridge, Hooded Yellowthroat and the migratory Golden-winged Warbler and Black-billed Cuckoo are present at the site. One of the main purposes of the station is the conservation of local cloud forest and the resident and migratory birds that inhabit this endangered habitat. Another objective is training Latin American biologists in the theory and techniques of bird banding, research, and conservation. Alan Monroy is an ornithologist, natural resource management specialist, and Director of the Kiekari Bird Observatory. He is a NABC-certified Master Bander and a member of the World Commission on Natural Protected Areas of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)
