Tobago

by the local football team and the playing surface dimension is 105 metres x 68 metres. Red-breasted Blackbird has benefited from the more open habitat created by forest clearance and ranching, and is extending its range. It is uncertain whether sightings on Tobago represent a small breeding population or wanderers from Trinidad or South America. The '''Shiny Cowbird''', ''Molothrus bonariensis'', is a passerine bird in the New World family Icteridae. It breeds in most of South America apart from the most dense jungles, mountains and deserts (although spreading into these habitats as they are modified by humans), the coldest southernmost regions (e.g. Tierra del Fuego), and on Trinidad and Tobago. It has relatively recently colonised Chile and many Caribbean islands, and has reached the USA, where it is probably breeding in southern Florida. Northern and southernmost populations are partially migratory (bird migration). The '''Orange-winged Amazon''' (''Amazona amazonica''), also known locally as '''Orange-winged Parrot''' and '''Loro Guaro''', is a large Amazon parrot. It is a resident breeding bird in tropical South America, from Colombia, Trinidad and Tobago south to Peru and central Brazil. Its habitat is forest and semi-open country. Although common, it is persecuted as an agricultural pest and by capture for the pet trade (over 66,000 captured in the years 1981-1985). It is also hunted as a food source. In 1852, Daly was appointed lieutenant-governor of Tobago; he was next appointed to the same post in Prince Edward Island. In 1858, he announced his resignation and departed the following year. In October 1861, he was appointed the next Governor of South Australia and died in office in 1868 in Adelaide. '''Universal Airlines''' was an airline based in Georgetown (Georgetown, Guyana), Guyana. The Universal Airlines operated a scheduled passenger service to the USA and to nearby Trinidad and Tobago. Operations were suspended in 2005. The '''Lesser Swallow-tailed Swift''' or '''Cayenne Swift''', ''Panyptila cayennensis'', is a resident breeding bird from southern Mexico and Tobago south to Ecuador, eastern Peru and Brazil. Distribution and habitat The swift is a common resident of Trinidad, Tobago, Grenada and Saint Vincent (Saint Vincent (island)), and in tropical South America from Panama, Colombia and the Guianas south to Ecuador, Peru and Brazil; in Brazil, the entire Amazon Basin, excluding much of the southeastern Basin. It rarely occurs over 800 m ASL (Above mean sea level) even in the hottest parts of its range and in mountaineous or hilly terrain it inhabits Laverde-R. ''et al.'' (2005) , but has been recorded as high as 1,300 m ASL Cuervo ''et al.'' (2007) . It is found in a range of habitats including savanna, open woodland, and cultivation. '''''Erythrolamprus ocellatus''''', the '''Tobago False Coral''' is a snake which is endemic (endemic (ecology)) to the island of Tobago (in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago). Unlike other ''Erythrolapus'' species, ''E. ocellatus'' is not sympatric (sympatry) with coral snakes and has a spotted rather than a banded pattern. It probably feeds on other snakes. Geographic range Found mostly on the island of Tobago, where it is known from widely scattered locations, and from a single location on the island of Trinidad, which happens to be the type locality (Type locality (biology)). This is described as "Trinidad County of St. George , ... Arima Road, 3 miles above north of Simla (Asa Wright Nature Centre) Research Station ." The '''Blue-chinned Sapphire''' (''Chlorestes notatus'') is a hummingbird that breeds from Colombia south and east to the Guianas, Trinidad, Peru, and Brazil. There have been occasional records from Tobago. For Brazil, the species' range is along the main Amazon River Basin (Amazon Basin), as well as the coastal Atlantic Ocean, both in the northeast, as well as far south on the southeast coastal strip, (an entire coastal strip, north-east-south of about 3000 km). It is sometimes placed in the genus ''Chlorostilbon''. The '''Gray Kingbird''', also known as '''Pitirre''', ''Tyrannus dominicensis'', is a passerine bird. It breeds from the extreme southeast of the USA through Central America, from Cuba to Puerto Rico as well as eastward towards all across the Lesser West Indies, south to Venezuela, Trinidad, Tobago the Guiana (The Guianas) and Colombia. Northern populations are migratory (bird migration), wintering on the Caribbean coast of Central America and northern South America. The '''Streaked Flycatcher''', ''Myiodynastes maculatus'', is a passerine bird in the tyrant flycatcher family (family (biology)). It breeds from eastern Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago south to Bolivia and Argentina. The southern subspecies ''M. m. solitarius'' migrates (bird migration) to Venezuela and the Guianas from March to September during the austral winter. This bird is found in humid tropical forests from southern Mexico and the Yucatán Peninsula, to Trinidad and Tobago, south to Peru and Argentina. They are able to tolerate some degree of habitat fragmentation, breeding successfully near cities and in forest fragments as small as Commons:Tobago


Rhondda

;ref name "Morgan101" Morgan (1988), p. 101 The TUC called off the strike just nine days later, without resolving the miners' cut in wages. The miners disagreed and stayed on strike for a further seven months until they were starved into surrendering. The Rhondda saw many schemes set up by miners to aid their plight, such as soup kitchens and fêtes and 'joy' days to support them; Wales in the Twentieth Century World: Family on the Dole 1919-1939; Mid Glamorgan County Council Education Department (1994) pp. 3-4 while in Maerdy the local miners set up a rationing system. By the time the miners returned to work there was little desire for further action through strikes, which saw a decline in the popularity of 'The Fed' and greater emphasis on solving problems through political and parliamentary means. Morgan (1988), p. 102 With the advent of the Great Depression (Great Depression in the United Kingdom), employment within the Rhondda Valleys continued to fall. This in turn led to a decline in public and social services, as people struggled to pay rates and rents. John (1980), p. 541 One of the outcomes of a lack of funds was a fall in health provisions, which in Rhondda lead to a lack of medical and nursing staff, John (1980), p. 542 a failure to provide adequate sewage works and a rise in deaths from tuberculosis. John (1980), p. 543 By 1932 the long-term unemployment figure in the Rhondda was recorded at 63%, John (1980), p. 539 and in Ferndale the unemployment figure for adult males rose as high as 72.85%. With little other employment available in the Rhondda John (1980), p. 518 the only solution appeared to be emigration. Between 1924 and 1939, 50,000 people left the Rhondda. During this time life was difficult for communities built solely around a singular industry, especially as most families were on a single wage. The start of the Second World War saw a complete turnaround in the employment figures, and by 1944 unemployment figures in the Rhondda ranged from 1% in Treorchy to 3.7% at Tonypandy. John (1980), p. 563 Mining disasters 250px right thumb The Lewis Merthyr Colliery, now part of the Rhondda Heritage Park (File:Lewis Merthyr Colliery.jpg) As with any heavy industry, the possibility of serious injury or death was an everyday risk for the mine workers of the Rhondda Valley. The most notorious form of colliery disaster (Mining accident) was the gas explosion, Davies (2008), p. 160 caused by either a buildup of methane gas or coal dust. As the mines became deeper and ventilation become more difficult to control the risk increased. The worst single incident in the Rhondda was the 1867 Ferndale disaster in which an explosion saw the loss of 178 lives. However, the major disasters only accounted for roughly 20% of overall fatalities, with individual accidents accounting for the bulk of deaths. Davies (2008), p. 161 The list below shows mining disasters which saw the loss of five or more lives during a single incident. class "wikitable" + '''Mining disasters in the Rhondda Valley 1850 - 1965''' !

It breeds in much of northern South America from Panama and Trinidad south to Peru, Bolivia and central Brazil. In Peruvian folklore, this species &ndash; like other cacique (cacique (bird))s and oropendolas &ndash; is called ''paucar'', or &ndash; referring to this species only &ndash; '''''paucarcillo''''' ("little ''paucar''"). This species is apparently the ''paucar'' that, according to a folktale of Moyobamba, originated as a rumor-mongering boy who always wore black pants and a yellow jacket.
