Due to a 90% chance of rain on Friday, the horse wagon for downtown Silver City is cancelled. He will be here on Saturday unless there is a dramatic change in weather. 

Right now, Saturday is forecast to be partly sunny with no precipitation. 

With an estimated 1,935 species of birds, Colombia boasts the world’s richest avifauna. Nearly 20 percent of the world’s bird species occur there, many of which are unique to that country. Join us for a program by Lynn Haugen and Julian Lee titled “From the Guajira Península to Otún Quimbaya: Birding the Colombian Andes” on December 6 at 7 PM in Harlan Hall, room 219, on the WNMU campus at 12th and Alabama Street. 

Their search for birds took them to the rain forests and cloud forests of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, an isolated mountain range in the north of the country. It includes the two highest mountains in Colombia: Pico Cristóbal Colón, 18,950 ft., and Pico Simón Bolívar, 18,497 ft., and is home to numerous endemic birds. In contrast to the wet slopes of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, the nearby Guajira Península is a harsh desert land of extreme aridity. Yet it, too, supports many endemic and near-endemic birds. It is also home to some 140,000 Wayuu, an indigenous people whom the Spanish were never able to subjugate.

It's a software problem, not easily fixable, other than showing fewer articles per summary page. If you are a frequent visitor, you might not mind fewer articles per page, but if you only come once in a while, you likely want to see more articles to browse.
