The height of humming bird fall migration is mid to late September. To celebrate their annual journey, several locations offer community nature days and festivals. At the Gulf Coast Bird Observatory in Lake Jackson, the Xtreme Hummingbird Xtravaganza will be held on Sep. 14 and Sep. 21 from 8 a.m. to noon.
It features hummers being captured, then weighed, measured, studied, and a tiny aluminum band placed on their legs. It’s all part of a long term hummer migration study, and the public is invited to come view the banding. The event also offers booths with live animals and educational activities, snack and shaved ice booths, symbolic adoption of a hummer with a certificate, native plant sales, nature store, and hummer talks. And Sir Archie will be on the grounds. for more information, visit gcbo.org.
