Studies have given us insights into the wonders of hummingbirds. This talk will provide information including: what is a hummingbird, how they did they evolve, how do their nectar gathering and pollination activities compare with bees and butterflies, what do they eat besides nectar, what are their feeding techniques, what is torpor, how is their iridescence produced, and what is unusual about their courtship behaviors?
Bob and Dana will share their adventures with 10 different, remarkable species they have seen on their journeys in the Americas. Many spectacular pictures and videos will be included. Join us to marvel at these little feathered gems.
