Feathered Family Portrait: Hummingbirds

May 10 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

Zoom Online class participants will receive a Zoom link for the class two hours before the class begins.

$30 Non-Member / $24 Member

Hummingbirds are nothing if not spectacular. Even stoic biologists lose their minds when it comes to these incredible aeronauts. Found only in the Americas, hummingbirds are found from above the Arctic Circle to the southern tip of South America. This class is part of a series that explores individual bird families on a global scale.
