A contest organized by the commune and the Bird Watchers Club Guaicurú determined that Benteveo will be the bird of the city.
The contest Election of the bird of the city of Resistencia , which had Benteveo as the winner, was organized by the Bird Watchers Club (COA) Guaicurú. The Ministry of Environment and Public Services of the Municipality of Resistencia also participated. The aim of the initiative was to ensure that this selection serves to promote the knowledge, valuation, preservation and protection of local species and natural habitats. This drives the construction and strengthening of an identity as citizens of Resistance in relation to the environment.
The Secretary of Environment and Public Services, Bernardo Voloj , explained that after two and a half months of the selection process, with more than 1000 participants, Benteveo was chosen as the city's bird.
This competition contemplated a democratic and participatory voting process, which sought to reach all the inhabitants of Resistencia. Citizens were able to participate in different ways, such as virtual voting through a form available on the official website of the municipality chaque o . Another way of voting was through the placement of coupons in ballot boxes located in different parts of the city.
Voloj stressed the importance of this environmental initiative, so that birdwatching is registered as a trademark of the city. Benteveo is not the only protagonist, birds in general are attractive in Resistance. This discipline, which is booming in many cities, can become a source of income from sustainable tourism.
“These initiatives in turn generate the strengthening of environmental and institutional actions and protecting our city's biodiversity,” said Voloj.
The common Benteveo is also known as Cristofué, Quetupí , Bichofué, Bichofeus, Pitogue bird, Luis Bienteveo or Benteveo. Its scientific name is Pitangus sulphuratus .
This bird from the Tiranididae family is named for its characteristic song. In addition to catching insects in full flight, he also hunts lizards on tree trunks, eats some fruits and descends into the water to catch small fish . They are sociable birds, alive, meek and, despite the fact that their singing is somewhat noisy, it is not unpleasant. In some places it is believed that when the benteveo screams at noon, next to a house, it warns the arrival of unexpected people. Elsewhere they attribute their cry near a house to a birth announcement.
