Hummingbirds – Magic in the Air
Feb 11, 2015 5:30 pm., Southworth Library Auditorium
Co-sponsored by the Friends of the Dartmouth Libraries and the Paskamansett Bird Club.


Gina Beebe Nichol, founder and prinicipal tour leader of Sunrise Birding, LLC, a birding and wildlife tour company will share about hummingbirds at Southworth Library on Feb. 11th at 5:30 pm. Free and open to the public. Seating is limited – tickets are available at Southworth Library.

With 330 species known in the world, hummingbirds are the second largest family of birds after flycatchers. These tiny aeronautic marvels have the ability to hover, fly backward, and migrate long distances. The physiological capacity of hummingbirds to raise and lower their heart rate and body temperature to survive cold nights is unmatched in the animal world. This program illustrates the amazing adaptations of these glittering gems and describes their fascinating life histories. Vivid photographs of hummingbirds in the United States, Costa Rica, and Ecuador tell the story of how these birds survive in habitats that range from tropical forests to the forests of the Andes Mountains.
