Hummingbirds 101

Get ready, get set, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are coming. Where have they been all winter? Why do they return to New Jersey? Will more than one settle into a back-yard garden? Where is the nest? What does the female use to build her tiny nest? Do I need to buy bottled nectar for my feeder? Is red dye needed in feeders? Did you know that hummingbirds like spiders (for at least two reasons)? Even if you think you know every- thing about these winged jewels, expect to be surprised by what you learn during this presentation by Pat Sutton, naturalist and wildlife gardener. She will show you an actual hummingbird nest and will share essential tips on how to ready your yard so that you can be entertained by a blizzard of hummingbirds for the next five months. A book signing will follow the presentation.
