The Torres-Martinez Band of Cahuilla Indians are one of six bands of Cahuilla, indigenous people of the Coachella Valley region whose historic range spans multiple Southern California ecosystems, including high and low deserts, coniferous forests, scrublands, and the Salton Sea. The Torres-Martinez Reservation runs up against the Salton Sea, making the Tribe one of several agencies and organizations working toward responsible management of California’s largest body of water, as well as one of its most vulnerable and critical migratory bird habitats.
This guide was designed in collaboration with the Tribe’s Natural Resources and Cultural Resources departments, and includes the Cahuilla names for several common birds as well as a few other non-avian migratory species.
From the computer to the field
Our pocket filed guides are designed to print on Letter (8.5x11”) size paper.
When printing, be sure to print two-sided, with short edge binding. Otherwise, you’ll end up with one side that’s upside down.
Print at “Actual Size.” If this, for some reason, does not work, try the “fit” option.
The guide should be folded like a typical tri-fold brochure: start with the side that has the images of the birds facing up; fold the right panel in, then fold the left panel on top, so the cover is on the outside.
