Ashland and San Miguel connected by migratory birds

The article “Migrating Birds Link Ashland, Ore., and Guanajuato, Mexico” was published on the Jefferson Public Radio website.

It was written by Kernan Turner, who is the Southern Oregon Historical Society’s volunteer editor and coordinator of the As It Was series broadcast daily by Jefferson Public Radio. 

Ashland and Guanajuato, Mexico, have developed cultural and people-to-people ties since becoming sister cities 47 years ago.  For thousands of years before that, migratory birds from the Klamath-Siskiyou Bioregion have connected the two cities by spending their winters in Mexico’s Sierra Madre Oriental.

A Klamath Bird Observatory publication says, “Like the mountain habitats that surround them, these two cities are linked by the migratory birds … that breed during the summer in the forests that surround Ashland (and) can be seen in habitats around the city of Guanajuato during the winter.”
