Hummingbird Banding at Lake Hope State Park
July 15, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Listen and watch in awe as renowned ornithologist Allen Chartier discusses the natural history of the ruby-throated hummingbird in North America during his presentation from 8:30-9:30 am.
Then step outside and watch the magic happen as he captures and bands these tiny, winged gems for science from 10:00 am-12:00 pm. Just inches away from you, he’ll be taking measurements and answering questions about the process, giving you the best looks at the birds that you’ve ever had!
