Banding at the Mt Lemmon site will begin on Sunday, May 15. Volunteers are needed for these sites and for the site at Madera Canyon. Check out the schedule and volunteer wish list on pages two and three of this site. I'm certainly not the most dexterous person around, and I've done recording and feeding/releasing. It's a wonderful group of people and you'll learn a lot - and not just about hummingbirds - while enjoying the great outdoors.
On the topic of learning, Mary Pat sent me this TED video about pollinators. Some truly amazing footage (starting at about 3:20) of hummingbirds, butterflies, bats, and bees.
And finally, the 'Plus' portion of this post, namely, videos of the nano hummingbird camera. Thanks, Marty!
