Avimor - there are many things going on degrading the tropical forest. Shade-grown coffee can help a little, and when combined with other efforts, can make a difference! No guilt - just each of us choosing where we can contribute.

Shade-grown coffee seems to be getting a lot of attention. Tea and sugar plantations also disturb a lot of tropical forest too. Everything we eat or drink impacts the environment one way or another. I don't want to feel guilty all the time, but I'm all for doing what one can.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
