Reminder: Tomorrow is Migration 
Celebration<> 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<>! 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<> 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<> : 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<>: 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<>: 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<> table.  Please stop by. Tens of 
thousands of people around the world are taking Bird Academy online 
courses<>. 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 
 and any other course people want to preview.
We will also have a copy of our Handbook of Bird Biology, 3rd 
Edition<> to view and Wild 
Birds Unlimited will be selling them. Noah will be demonstrating our fun 
educational games  Flap to the 
Future<> and Beast 
Box<>. Our interactive Bird Anatomy 
tool<> 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.
