Winter Hummingbird Program
Susan Campbell, NC hummingbird biologist, will discuss the phenomenon of wintering hummingbirds in southeastern North Carolina. This relatively recent phenomenon is poorly understood. Considered one of the final frontiers in ornithology, the ecology and distribution of winter hummingbirds is fascinating stuff! Having studied hummingbirds across the state year-round since 1999, Susan has some insights into the occurrence and behavior of hummers in our area. She will discuss her research as well as provide information on cold weather feeding for those fortunate enough to host these tiny dynamos during the colder months.
This class is $25 per person 

Thursday Feb. 17 | 6:30 – 8:00 pm
Location: Online! 
Enjoy this class from the comfort of your home!
