Monday, Nov. 13 will be the Cayuga Bird Club's monthly meeting.
Our speaker this month is Dr. Emma Greig (Ph.D., University of Chicago). She
joined the Citizen Science program at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in 2013 as
the project leader of Feederwatch. Prior to joining the Citizen Science team,
Emma was a postdoc in the Macaulay Library at the Lab of Ornithology, working
with Mike Webster (2010-2013), and now continues to collaborate with the
"Weblab" on questions related to behavioral ecology and evolution in birds.
Emma's dissertation looked at the function of Splendid Fairy-wren
vocalizations, including the enigmatic Type II� song that is given in
association with predator vocalizations.
Dr. Greig's presentation is entitled: Stories from Project FeederWatch: What
We Have Learned from 30 Years of Counting BirdsProject FeederWatch is a
continent-wide bird counting effort in which people keep track of the birds
that visit their feeders in winter. We will learn about how the program works,
and perhaps more importantly, what we have learned from 30 years of data
collection. Why are Anna's Hummingbirds expanding their range? Is feeding birds
harmful or helpful? Project FeederWatch data provides insights into both of
these questions, and many more. The meeting will be held at the Cornell
Laboratory of Ornithology. Doors open at 7:00 pm with cookies and conversation
starting at 7:15. Bird club business begins at 7:30 pm followed by the
presentation. All are welcome. Members are also invited to join Emma Grieg for
dinner at Aladdin's in Collegetown just before the meeting at 5:30. Please rsvp
to Colleen Richards @ cl...@juno.com by noon on Mon., Nov.13, so reservations
can be made.
Have a great week everyone.Colleen Richards
