Join the New Hampshire Audubon Seacoast Chapter for their in person October program: Hummingbirds, The Most Marvelous of Bird Families.
Bob and Dana Fox have developed a new talk focusing on hummingbirds. They will begin with what is a hummingbird and then describe their adventures with 10 different, remarkable species they have seen on their journeys in the Americas. They will also share the results of recent research which has given us deeper insights into the wonders of this family: how they evolved, pollination through nectaring (including a comparison with bees and butterflies), their diet of insects and nectar, nectar feeding technique, use of torpor, how iridescence is produced, and their courtship. Many spectacular pictures and videos will be included. Come and marvel at these little gems.
The Seacoast Chapter meets monthly on the second Wednesday except the months of July and August unless there is a special program. Refreshments are served at 7 pm and the meetings begin at 7:30 pm unless otherwise noted (entrance doors locked at 7:45 pm). The public is welcome free of charge. In person meetings are held at the Seacoast Science Center at Odiorne State Park, Route 1A, Rye, NH. Wheelchair accessible. For more information on chapter programs, please contact: Dan Hubbard, (603) 332-4093 or [email protected]
