Hummingbirds – John Bland

Who can go from 0 to 30 mph instantly, fly upside down and backwards, and fly over 500 miles without stopping? Meet the hummers! These magnificent little birds of the New World are full of surprises. Naturalist and park volunteer John Bland presented a one-hour presentation on how to discover the lives of nature’s smallest birds and how you can enjoy and protect them in your own backyard.
