Maricao and Vieques bird counts take place on Important Birds Areas (IBA) as designated by
BirdLife International. We invite you to join us as volunteers. As always, we will be promoting a
birding package on December that will include Maricao Xmas Bird Count.
Many birds, especially those that migrate, can use the "Earth's magnetic field to stay their course
during long flights. Scientists still aren't sure how they do it, but one recent study suggests birds
might have a form of synesthesia that lets them "see" the planet's magnetic lines as patterns of
color or light that is overlaid on their visual surroundings. Humans must rely on familiar landmarks
or the sun's position to locate North, and many can't even manage that.
As part of our corporate social responsibility, in 2002 we founded the Puerto Rican Association of
Interpretation and Education, Inc. (known locally as APIE), a non-profitable organization. Through
APIE and its volunteers, we coordinate several conservation through birding activities, such as:
- Endemic Bird of Puerto Rico Bird Festival at the Maricao State Forest (May, as part of the
Caribbean Endemic Bird Festival)
- National Trails Day (first Sunday of June)
- Mayagüez Christmas Bird Count (December)
- Maricao Christmas Bird Count (December)
- Vieques Island Christmas Bird Count (January, organized by the volunteers from VIeques)
