Hummingbird and other bird news

Hummingbirds are enjoying the feeders in the Helen Hamilton outdoor area…be sure to check them out! Tony Rothering, professor of biology, gives kudos to his department for the filling and maintaining of feeders (hummingbird and otherwise).

Tony also notes that fall bird banding season begins Monday, Aug 26 and continues through mid-November in the woods on the north edge of campus.  Master bird bander Vern Kleen will be banding from dawn to 11 a.m., Mon.-Fri. and some Saturdays. All are welcome to stop by!  A number of biology instructors are bringing classes out for demonstrations at various times throughout the semester.
