Birding & Nature Festival
Migration Madness – April 27-30, 2017
Migration magic is experienced throughout the avian world leaving us marveling at the stamina, path-finding ability, and tenacity of these mad creatures. One of the most amazing is the Rufous Hummingbird. Measured by body size, the rufous makes one of the longest migratory journeys of any bird in the world. Traveling clockwise up the Pacific Coast in winter/spring, to the Pacific Northwest and Alaska heading south again in July following the Rocky Mountains. His excellent memory for location helps it find flowers and feeders from day to day and year to year. This feisty little bird will chase away all comers to his perceived territory. No wonder we’re taken with his talents. Join us this year as we celebrate all migrations including birders who travel the country in search of feathered migrants.
