Bird Talk: Hummingbirds

Hummingbirds' ability to hover and fly backward is quite impressive—as is their ability to raise and lower their heart rate and body temperature to survive cold nights. The lecture "Hummingbirds: Feathered Gems" discusses how these birds survive in habitats that range from tropical jungles to the forests of the Andes Mountains. Gina Beebe Nichol has been a naturalist and birder for more than twenty-five years, working in the Yellowstone Institute and later founding Sunrise Birding. Wednesday, 7:30 pm.
