I'm going to guess it's a light for the picnic area there.

I also thought it might be a heater, mosquito trap, or a bird house of some sort.

Negative.

One hint: The lake in the background is Lake Keuka. It is one of the finger lakes in NY.

The item on the pole is of historical importance.

Oh right, the front page pic. I skip the front page, forgot that that was the pic of the day. I opened this expecting a pic.

Well if you or MagerThom post something like this, it's always about aviation. ;)

The Curtiss 1911 Model D?

Curtiss's reconstructed Aerodrome of 1914 achieved two brief over-the-water flights and a later sustained flight over Lake Keuka in New York. After the plane was returned to the Smithsonian, the museum labelled Curtiss's reconstructed Langley Aerodrome in an exhibit as "the first airplane capable of sustained free flight with a man" a point of great annoyance to the Wright brothers.

OK, here's the dope.

This is a 1911 Curtiss A1 Triad, which was the first float plane ever made.

The Glenn Curtiss Museum is flying a full scale replica of this plane, off the lake on September 18, 2004
