Colombia is a country of colors, aromas, flavors, friendly people, and above all, lots of wildlife.

Colombia is truly unique in one respect: it is very, very rich in life forms. In fact, it is considered among the world’s four richest countries in biological diversity.

Barn Owl (Tyto alba) hunting at a church bell tower at Heredia Costa Rica. Barn Owls are nature's best pest control. It was recorded that after two years, 18 mating pairs of owls had moved in and removed over 25,000 rodents from the property. One reason barn owls in particular make good pest removers is their wide range of habitats. The owls are found from fields to forests in the Americas, Europe, Africa, India, Southeast Asia, and Australia.

In this issue, Wolfe et al. show that dry El Niño events were associated with strikingly low manakin survival in young forests, while El Niño events had little effect on survival in mature forests. These results suggest that mature forests may serve as refugia for fruit-eating birds during periods of climatic instability.
