On the importance of the Cerulean and Golden-winged Warblers summits in the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia in Bogotá

Cerulean Warbler is a bird with problems; this migratory
bird lives in environments on which large numbers
of people depend for an adequate productive
livelihood, energy, high quality wood products, coffee,
and cacao. Solving the biological problems of this
species in its complex environments poses a difficult
challenge. The Cerulean Warbler Technical Group was
formed in 2001 to provide a forum to share information
about this bird, and to identify and test solutions to the
problems it faces. Members of this successful effort
are dedicated to developing and sharing information
in a spirit of mutual respect, open communication
and trust. In October 2008 we visited Bogota and
San Vicente de Chucuri to meet with those colleagues
that can better understand the conditions on the
non-breeding grounds, seeking to forge partnerships
between actors from the North American breeding
grounds and actors from South and Central America;
addressing the problems faced by the birds in socially
responsible, and economically productive ways. We
were joined by colleagues with similar aspirations for
collaborative solutions to the problems of another
migratory bird, the Golden-winged Warbler.
