  • Location: Gulf Coast Bird Observatory
  • Time: Sept. 18, 25
Watch the thumb-sized hummers dart in and out of nectar-producing flowers like lantana, trumpet-vine, and honeysuckle, or spy them sipping nectar at feeders hanging from tree limbs and building awnings. Enjoy seeing a bird-bander hold a tiny hummingbird while taking measurements of the bird, weighing it, and clamping a thin, number-coded band on one of its tiny legs. This event also has activities for kids, nature-themed booths, and native plant sales.
