Hi Folks, Yesterday's discovery of a Prothonotary Warbler in Renwick Woods adjacent to Stewart Park in Ithaca is notable because it is one of the focal species (along with Purple Martin and Wood Thrush) for which we are improving habitat in Renwick and Lighthouse Point Woods. This exciting event reminds me that you can join the Cayuga Bird Club on a trip to Colombia in early December of this year, where we likely will see Prothonotary Warblers on their wintering grounds.
We already have 4 travelers signed up to go, and their is a cap of 10 people placed on the trip. See the flyer on the Club webpage for more information. I've been in contact with friends and colleagues in Colombia about some of the street protests you may have seen on the news lately. As I suspected, those protests largely are occurring in small parts of the bigger cities. We likely will not be anywhere near them on the trip in December (if they still are going on then). Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks Jody Jody W.
