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…
A hummingbird researcher, and her avian loving husband, escape all that is worrying the world by taking exotic world-wide work vacations.
But, often at the end of a long work-day, they also recognize the rewards they receive, when they just retreat right here at home.
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.
