About the Event

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. With such high-energy lives, how do you study their life habits? Join senior naturalist Stephen Lyn Bales as he shares what we know through a series of photographs and then walk outside in search of these tiny dynamos as part of the Ijams Hummingbird Festival's Bird Nerd Speaker Series!

Learn more about the Ijams Hummingbird Festival: A Celebration of Wings and the other Bird Nerd events here. Special thanks to sponsors Accenture, HomeTrust Bank, Knox Brew Tours, Stanley’s Greenhouse, and Tennessee Wildlife Federation for making this event possible!
