About the Event

Description: Weighing less than two dimes, ruby-throated hummingbirds are a wonder. They spend their summers with us but migrate to Central America in the fall. So with such high-energy lives, how do you study their life habits? Join senior naturalist Stephen Lyn Bales as he relates what we know about hummingbirds and how they are banded through a series of photographs. You'll also walk outside in search of hummingbirds. This program leads up the Ijams Hummingbird Festival: A Celebration of Wings, where you'll get to see birds banded and more, on Saturday, Aug. 13!
Materials Participants Should Bring: Comfortable shoes, weather appropriate clothing, and all your questions about hummingbirds.
Program Duration: 6-8 pm - 2+ hours of indoor and outdoor learning
Location: This program meets at the Ijams Nature Center Visitor Center.
