June Pollinator Meetup: The Secret Lives of Hummingbirds
June 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Everything you wanted to know about Hummingbirds but were afraid to ask.
Hummingbirds are fascinating and endearing little birds that can be attracted to residential yards and gardens. The Ruby-throated Hummingbird is the only hummingbird breeding in eastern North America and is a fairly common summer resident across the mid-Atlantic region. This presentation will provide information about hummingbird biology, their migration patterns, and tips about how to attract these delightful birds to your yards.
Bruce Peterjohn has been actively studying hummingbirds across the mid-Atlantic region for the past 10 years. While his primary interest is focused on hummingbirds that spend the winter in the region, he has also been studying the Ruby-throats that breed in the area. A resident of Laurel, MD, he is employed at the US Geological Survey’s Patuxent Wildlife Research Center where he is currently the Chief of the US Bird Banding Program.
