6:30 – 7:00pm: Club annual meeting business (Cornell members only)
7:00 – 800pm: Presentation with Carolyn Sedgwick from the Lab of Ornithology followed by Q&A

Once again, our Annual Meeting will be held virtually. At the 6:30pm business meeting we will introduce the current board, review organizational developments, report on news from Ithaca, and discuss upcoming activities. Then stay tuned to hear from Carolyn Sedgwick from the Lab of Ornithology!

May is the height of spring bird migration on the east coast! Join us to learn about the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s easy-to-use bird identification app, Merlin, and how it can help beginning and advanced birders alike. We’ll also discuss a few species that soon will be returning to the Cape from points south. Learn about identifying these species by sight and sound, the migratory routes they take, and which habitats they prefer. If you’re interested in the Lab’s free Merlin app and have access to a smart phone/tablet, please consider downloading Merlin and the “US: Northeast” Bird Pack prior to the meeting. If you have any questions, feel free to email Carolyn Sedgwick in advance at cws67@cornell.edu.

Carolyn works at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology where she serves as an ambassador for the Lab’s many conservation, research, and education programs. She has worked with conservation nonprofits for a decade and has been birdwatching since she was a teenager. She also happens to spend much of her free time on Cape Cod. Carolyn holds an  undergraduate degree in Natural Resources from Cornell and a master’s in Environmental Management from Duke.
