Our Global Big Day

On May 9th, Dr. Mary Ann Cunningham (from the Earth Science Department) and I headed out to the Vassar Farm and Ecological Preserve to participate in the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Global Big Day (read more about that here).  We were joined by students and faculty from Vassar College, as well as members of the community.  All told we identified 25 species of birds and introduced some new folks to birding.  Below you’ll find our species list and some great photos (taken by Tom Finckle). We’re looking forward to next year!
