Monday, October 9, will be the next monthly meeting of the Cayuga Bird Club. 
Who goes there? Birding with Infrared Thermography Speaker: Suan Yong
 Infrared Thermography allows one to see the temperature of everyday objects. 
It can highlight warm objects against a cooler background, making it a great 
tool for finding birds and other warm-blooded animals. A few years ago, when 
affordable thermal cameras appeared on the market, Suan decided to try using 
them to see if he could find owls in the night or bitterns in the marsh. He has 
done both, as well as follow a woodcock skydance, count migrants in the night 
sky, and track a grouse through thick brush. Suan will share his experiences 
with this technology.
 Suan Yong is a software scientist at GrammaTech in Ithaca. His interest in the 
natural world began as a boy growing up in Malaysia collecting butterflies, and 
shifted to birding in 2007 after moving to Ithaca. He regularly leads bird 
walks for the Cayuga Bird Club, Spring Field Ornithology, and other events at 
the Lab of Ornithology.If there is interest, we can follow the talk with a 
short walk into Sapsucker woods to see if we find anything interesting.
The meeting will be held at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. All are 
welcome. Doors open at 7:00 pm and there will be cookies and conversation 
starting at 7:15. Bird club business begins at 7:30 pm followed by the 
presentation. Members: Please remember that we will be voting for a slate of 
Members are invited to join Suan for dinner at Taste of Thai Express (downtown 
on Rt. 13N) just before the meeting at 5:30 p.m. Please RSVP to Colleen 
Richards at  by noon Monday so reservations can be made.Colleen
