Hummingbird Researcher

Share the tropical travels of a couple on a humanitarian avian project.

You may have heard it said, “If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life.”

Well, there are those who fly with that fun fact a little further…

After returning from their excursions, Cyndi Routlege wrote a grant in order to send money for more research in Cuba.

She says 66% of our migratory birds pass through Cuba and it’s important that they continue to do research, so the birds have a place to go and it doesn’t get over-developed.

Cyndi mentioned the use of tiny trackers used on Monarch Butterflies that will now be used on hummingbirds. Wildlife tracking has become a rapidly growing new age method of using computer chips to follow the movement of animals… including bird migration.
