Birds and Beans

Did you know that shade grown coffee can play a key role in the conservation of migratory birds? "Shade-grown" refers to the way coffee has been traditionally farmed for generations. Coffee shrubs which are planted in the shade of tall trees, make traditional coffee plantations excellent homes for birds and other forest-dwelling wildlife.

For more information about the importance of certified bird friendly coffee, including information on changes to bird populations of various species, click here to download "Birds of Two Worlds: Saving Songbirds With Your Coffee Cup."


Flying WILD Student Pages

When we revised the 2006 Flying WILD guide, we altered some of the student pages to make the activities and instructions clearer, and easier to use. Since these changes were made after the printing of the Student Pages CD, they are not available on the disk. Please download the latest version of pages 111, 293-294 and 306-313.
