Date: 5/11/19 5:11 am From: Colleen Richards <clr82...> Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Cayuga Bird Club May meeting
Next Monday, May 13, will be the next monthly meeting of the Cayuga Bird Club.
Carl Steckler and Meg Richardson will give their presentation, "Birding the Caldera of a Supervolcano in Arizona".
Meg Richardson and Carl Steckler traveled to Tucson in September 2018 to find birds, and birds they found. This trip added 43 birds to Carl's life list and provided an exceptional look at the life in the desert. Southeast Arizona is truly a birder's and photographers' paradise. Arizona is a vast landscape of bold color, formations and piercing beauty. The southeastern corner is no exception. Isolated mountains called Sky Islands, the remnants of a supervolcano, rise abruptly from the arid desert highlands and harbor a tremendous variety of plant and animal life. Carl and Meg will give a brief geological history of the Tucson area and its flora and fauna.
The meeting will be held at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. Doors open at 7:00 pm and there will be cookies and conversation starting at 7:15. Bird club business begins at 7:30 pm followed by the presentation. All are welcome.
Members are invited to join Carl and Meg for dinner at Taste of Thai Express just before the meeting at 5:30 p.m. Please RSVP to Colleen Richards <clr82...> by noon Monday for making reservations.
