Two rare bird species spotted recently in trust-owned preserves
Rainforest Trust is thrilled to report not one, but two Critically Endangered birds species are thriving in their reserves this spring.
Earlier this month, a juvenile Blue-eyed Ground Dove was photographed during a rare sighting in Brazil. And this week, Rainforest Trust partner Fundación Jocotoco shared news that they located a group of Galápagos Petrel nests on the Galápagos Nature Reserve. This discovery is particularly exciting because there were no previously known colonies of petrels in the protected area. Colonies of the large, long-winged bird are rare and threatened, so evidence of population growth is an optimistic sign for the future of the species.
