A Place to Start

It’s migration season and time for you to be on your way. You’ve had a safe and food-rich winter in your southern wintering grounds – which have are protected thanks to the Bird Friendly¬© coffee initiative started by the Smithsonian Institute.

Bird Friendly Coffee encourages coffee growers to use the natural canopy of the rainforest to grow coffee plants. Not only does coffee grow well and produce better beans when grown under the canopy, but it actually provides multiple crops for growers to sell AND is exceptional wintering habitat for a variety of migratory birds.

But… it’s time to face the dangers of your northward migration! Onwards!
