The Audubon Society of Jackson County, Michigan
Expert birder and bander Allen Chartier will discuss his Great Lakes HummerNet project (http://www.amazilia.net/MIHummerNet/). The undertaking gathers information about hummingbirds from volunteer observers throughout the state.
Allen bands hummers in several states and all species at an ongoing project at Lake St. Clair Metropark. (Read his “Michigan Hummingbird Guy” blog at http://mihummingbirdguy.blogspot.com/.) He will offer hints on how to attract hummingbirds to our gardens. Allen is as knowledgeable and easy-to-listen-to birding speaker as you could ever hope to hear.
