About the Event

Join Naturalist Nick to get the inside scoop on something he’s been working on: researching songbirds and the fruits they use in the fall to fuel their migration southward. You'll get some insight into the wonders of bird migration, discover what makes fall migration unique, and learn all about frugivory (a fancy word for "fruit eating") and the intricacies of seed-dispersal in a family of birds called thrushes as part of the Ijams Hummingbird Festival's Bird Nerd Speaker Series!

Learn more about the Ijams Hummingbird Festival: A Celebration of Wings and 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!
