Reminder: Tomorrow is Migration Celebration<http://www.birds.cornell.edu/Page.aspx?pid=1816> at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca, NY.
Please come and check it out! Feel free to share this with your friends! This is my personal and unofficial invitation to this amazing event. Come explore the Cornell Lab of Ornithology<http://www.birds.cornell.edu/Page.aspx?pid=1478>! Learn about bird migration, conservation, and the amazing world of animal sounds. Enjoy interactive exhibits, games, workshops, and trail walks. Migrating warblers have been plentiful on the Sapsucker Woods trails this week! Free tickets to workshops will be handed out at the Migration Celebration welcome table. Space is limited for the workshops so be sure to arrive early, check the schedule, and pick up your tickets! There will be dozens of stations and exhibits as well as Cayuga Creamery ice cream and guided bird and nature walks. As Jody Enck mentioned, the Cayuga Bird Club<http://www.cayugabirdclub.org/> has a table in the lobby at the event. There will be many stations but I list below a sample of programs that are my personal favorites. Habitat Network<http://content.yardmap.org/> : a free online citizen science platform, invites people to map their outdoor space, share it with others, and learn more about supporting wildlife Bird Sleuth<http://www.birdsleuth.org/>: The K-12 education program at the Cornell Lab that create innovative K-12 resources that build science skills while inspiring young people to connect to local habitats, explore biodiversity, and engage in citizen-science projects. They will be having fun games for kids such as the Migration Obstacle Course. Bioacoustics Research Program<http://www.birds.cornell.edu/brp/>: BRP's mission is to collect and interpret sounds in nature by developing and applying innovative technologies across multiple ecological scales to inspire and inform conservation of wildlife and habitats. Kevin J. McGowan, Noah Warnke, and I will be manning the Bird Academy<https://academy.allaboutbirds.org/> table. Please stop by. Tens of thousands of people around the world are taking Bird Academy online courses<https://academy.allaboutbirds.org/course-list/>. This is your chance to test them out and ask the authors and developers questions. BIRDACADEMY is demonstrating our SNAP ID exercises for the Warbler ID course<https://academy.allaboutbirds.org/courses/be-a-better-birder-warbler-identification/> and any other course people want to preview. We will also have a copy of our Handbook of Bird Biology, 3rd Edition<http://www.sapsuckerwoods.com/product_p/14736.htm> to view and Wild Birds Unlimited will be selling them. Noah will be demonstrating our fun educational games Flap to the Future<https://academy.allaboutbirds.org/features/flaptothefuture/> and Beast Box<https://academy.allaboutbirds.org/beastbox/>. Our interactive Bird Anatomy tool<https://academy.allaboutbirds.org/all-about-bird-anatomy/> can be used online by anyone that wants to brush up on their knowledge of bird parts. Meet or get your photo with Thunder the Bird Academy eagle mascot. We hope to see you there.
