There's a large mass of ducks on the SW of Cayuga lake.

I don't think I have never seen such a massive group, and can't count it. Is it 
more than five thousand Redheads? 

It's visible by scope and bins, from the "Overlook, Rte. 89 N of Hog Hole" 
along house numbers like 830-840. 

Number 841 has a big parking lot with good views, but trees always block part 
of the MASSIVE flock. 

Redheads are 95%+, interspersed with a few other ducks and one lone Cormorant. 

Now back to grading exams....

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Cayuga Bird Club December meeting

Hi All,
Piggy-backing on Colleen's message about the Cayuga Bird Club meeting on Monday.
Read below about an opportunity to donate binoculars.

First, I promise that the talk will be fun and interesting even though it is 
based on real social science data.

Second, if you have a pair of binoculars sitting around your house in good 
working order, but otherwise not being used much, please consider donating them 
to our cause.  We've had high school students working here in Ithaca on our 
habitat restoration project, and we are going to be connecting them to students 
in Honduras working on conservation projects there.  These projects benefit the 
exact same bird species at different times and places in their annual life 
cycle.  In January, MPS student Mary McKean, who is working on the project with 
us, will be traveling to Honduras to meet with Bird Clubs and some school kids 
with whom they work.  She is willing to deliver any binoculars we donate for 
the kids in Honduras to use.  She will gladly collect any binoculars you want 
to donate Monday night.

See you Monday!
Jody Enck

Next Monday, December 9, will be the next monthly meeting of the Cayuga Bird 

 Our speaker, Jody Enck, will be presenting -- "What Makes a Birder a Birder?".

Ever wonder why you seem to fit in with some birders but scratch your head at 
the actions of others? Turns out that birders are as diverse in their 
identities as the birds are. But it's more about 'who you are' rather than 
'what you do' that separates the different birder identities. Jody will share 
fascinating facts about some of the 14 types of birders he uncovered while 
conducting research on birders a few years ago. Which type are you? Come listen 
and find out.

About the Speaker: Jody Enck started birding as a small boy growing up on a 
farm in Pennsylvania. Since then, he has continued to learn more and more about 
birds and the people who enjoy them. Jody especially loves bird-watching in his 
back yard to find out what the local residents are up to. He is also a closet 
lister, with more than 500 species seen in the U.S. and more than 1,150 seen 
worldwide. He has a background in wildlife biology and social science. In 2016, 
he founded the Sister Bird Club Network to link birders and bird clubs 
throughout the Western Hemisphere by raising awareness of the conservation 
needs of the neotropical migratory birds we all love. He is a past president 
and current chair of the conservation action committee for the Cayuga Bird 
Club. In 2020, he'll be leading trips for the Club to Costa Rica and Colombia.

 Members are invited to join Jody Enck for dinner at the Taste of Thai Express 
(Rt. 13N downtown) just before the meeting at 5:30 p.m. Please RSVP to Colleen 
Richards at<>
  by noon Monday so reservations can be made.
The meeting will be held at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. Doors open
