A part of the Guatemalan Pacific Slope Montane rainforest is under threat and you can help. Most of this habitat has been converted to agriculture over the last 100 years and many interesting bird species are rapidly disappearing (White-eared Ground-Sparrow, Long-tailed Manikin, Ruddy Quail-Dove, Violet Sabrewing, etc.) But especially interesting is a nesting troop of Endemic AZURE-RUMPED TANAGERS! This bird is globally endangered and considered the most endangered and important conservation priority bird for the country. It is restricted to the Pacific slope of Guatemala and adjacent Chiapas Mexico between 1000m and 1700m.To help save this bird see the article on Fatbirder?s Guatemala page.
