Hummingbirds amaze and intrigue us. Their high-speed enigmatic lifestyles are a blur; their startling colors and exotic behaviors are delights. Hummingbirds also inspire us—they are like tiny ambassadors with the power to usher people into a deeper interest in and appreciation for the natural world. Catering to these frenetically fascinating birds borders on a national obsession, and author John Shewey taps into the intrigue in his new book, The Hummingbird Handbook. Join John for this fun-filled program to learn more about hummingbirds, how to attract them, how to cater to them, and how to be a great hummingbird host in your yard.

Where and when do we meet? This online course meets on Tuesday, May 25th, from 6–7 p.m. CDT. It will be a one-hour online class with some time at the end for questions.

Cost: There is a one-time registration fee of $10.* We will be recording the webinar and making it available to participants for a week after the class. *We understand there are economic barriers that many are facing during this time. If you live in Alabama and would like to request financial assistance, please email us.*

Registration: Space is limited. To register, visit https://alaudubon.org/event/2021-05-25/.
