The Cayuga Bird Club's February meeting will be this coming Monday, Feb. 10 at 7:30 p.m.Come hear our speaker, Andrea Patterson giving her presentation - A Bird in the Hand. Braddock Bay Bird Observatory (BBBO) was founded in1986 with the purpose of studying stopover ecology on the south shore of Lake Ontario. Operating with an all-volunteer staff, BBBO has developed a 30-year data set consisting of nearly 300,000 individual banding records. In 2016, BBBO launched a new initiative to bring the Motus Wildlife Tracking System to upstate New York. Tiny radio transmitters carried by local or migrating birds are detected by stationary receivers deployed across the landscape,giving researchers an unprecedented window into avian movement at scales from local to hemispheric. Individually and collectively, these banding and digital records tell fascinating stories of bird behavior, movement and survival across an increasingly challenging landscape. Come hear Andrea Patterson, the Director of BBBO, talk about the joyful moments, surprising revelations, and occasional heartbreak of birding in the hand.
Doors open at 7 pm, refreshments at 7:15, meeting starts at 7:30 . As usual, this meeting is open to the public so please join us!! Stay tuned for further details of a dinner with the speaker before the meeting.
