Hummingbirds: Masters of the Air
Osher @ the J Lunch & Learn
Thursday, January 17 | noon-1:30 pm
With their ability to hover in place, fly upside-down or backwards, and cross seas without stopping, hummingbirds seem immune to the ordinary laws of physics. Master birder Connie Sidles takes you inside the high-speed, gravity-defying world of these tiny avian dynamos. Pack a lunch for this engaging lunch & learn session.
Author and naturalist Connie Sidles is a former board member of Seattle Audubon Society and its current Conservation Chair. She has written numerous books about her favorite birding site, the Montlake Fill, Seattle’s former city dump and now a natural area where hummingbirds fight their battles, find their food, and raise their young, to the delight of everyone.
