HUMMINGBIRDS 101 All About Ruby Throated Hummingbirds and How to Attract Them

Date: 
Saturday, April 19, 2014

Get ready, get set, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are coming.  Where have they been all winter?  In the Tropics!  Why leave a tropical area to return to New Jersey?  Will more than one settle into a backyard garden?  Where is the nest?  What does the female use to build her tiny nest?  Is bottled nectar (or red dye) needed for a feeder?  What are the two reasons hummingbirds like spiders?  Even if you think you know everything about these winged jewels, expect to be surprised by what you learn.  Pat Sutton will show off an actual hummingbird nest and share essential tips on how to ready your yard so that you can be entertained by a blizzard of hummingbirds for the next five months.

Cost: members $15, nonmembers $20 (includes handouts and Tropical Salvia seeds).
