Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Finger Lakes Land Trust Spring Bird Quest -- four guided walks over May 25-27
Hi everyone,

Please consider joining me over Memorial Day weekend for the Finger Lakes
Land Trust Spring Bird Quest (SBQ), a series of outings celebrating our
local birds and the Land Trust's work in protecting their vital habitats.
See below for a list of walks I'll be leading.  For full details,
including site descriptions and directions, see

As always, these SBQ events are free, but I will welcome donations in
support of the Land Trust. If you care to make a pledge, as either a
fixed amount or an amount per species I find over the weekend on Land
Trust preserves, please contact me off-list. I am very grateful even for
the smallest donations! (I think that we've collectively raised about
$75K for the Land Trust through the SBQ since its inception in 2006.)

In addition, a week from tomorrow (Saturday, May 18), my son Tilden Chao
will be leading a free birding walk for kids (age 5 and up) at the Roy H.
Park Preserve (south), starting at 9:30 AM. All kids must be accompanied
by a parent or other responsible adult. More details at the link above.

I am looking forward to some great birding with many of you!

Mark Chao
