Monday, November 11, will be the next monthly meeting of the Cayuga Bird Club. 
Our speaker Christina Hoh, NYSDEC Biologist in Avon, NY, will give the 
presentation "Monitoring New York's Winter Raptors".
 Upstate New York is known for its harsh winters, but some raptor species 
specialize in cold and snowy weather and spend their winters right here in our 
communities. These charismatic raptors, including Northern Harriers and 
Short-eared Owls, are under a wide range of threats, and NYSDEC, its partners, 
and volunteers work together to monitor these nomadic birds across their winter 
range in New York. 
 About the Speaker: Christina first came upstate to attend RIT, where she 
earned a B.S. in Biology and was introduced to avian research through bird 
banding on campus and at the Braddock Bay Bird Observatory. She then attended 
SUNY Brockport, where she monitored Great Lakes coastal wetland birds and 
amphibians and studied migration physiology of White-throated Sparrows for her 
M.S. degree. She spent four years as a Wildlife Technician at NYSDEC, where she 
monitored rare bird species and their habitat, and now works as a DEC Habitat 
Biologist here in the Finger Lakes/Western New York region.
 Come as we discuss these birds' natural history, current trends, our surveys 
and discoveries, and how you can take part in monitoring efforts..The meeting 
will be held at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. 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. All are welcome. Members are 
invited to join Christina for dinner at the Sumo Japanese Steak Restaurant 
(Cayuga Mall on Triphammer Rd.) before the meeting at 5:30 p.m. Please RSVP to
