Nature Night: For the Love of Hummingbirds


Hummingbirds amaze and intrigue us. Their high-speed enigmatic lifestyles are a blur; their startling colors and exotic behaviors are delights. Hummingbirds also inspire us—they are like tiny ambassadors with the power to usher people into a deeper interest in and appreciation for the natural world. Catering to these frenetic, fascinating birds borders on a national obsession, and author John Shewey taps into the intrigue with this program based on his new book, The Hummingbird Handbook. Join John for this fun-filled program and learn more about hummingbirds, including how to attract them to your yard, and how to be a great hummingbird host.
