In this May 22, 2012 photo, a road crosses through an agricultural area of a forest in San Francisco de Macoris, Dominican Republic. Conservationists are establishing a sanctuary that they say will be like no other in the Dominican Republic, blending sustainable agriculture with preservation on former pasture land at the edge of a cloud forest that will help protect a songbird called Bicknell's thrush which migrates each year from the northeastern U.S. and southern Canada.
