Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Spring Montezuma Tours
Good afternoon,



I wanted to share a few tour opportunities coming at the Montezuma Audubon Center during the month of May. Going on tours led by Audubon Staff is a great way for beginners to learn all the hot spots of Montezuma birding, or if you're a bit more advanced...well it's nice to be driven around, isn't it?! Hope you can join me this spring.



Wednesday, May 8th, 5:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
