DuPage Birding Club will host a presentation by hummingbird expert Nancy Carroll at 7:30 p.m. today, Thursday, Jan. 9, at Faith Lutheran Church, 41 N. Park Blvd., in Glen Ellyn.
Carroll, a master gardener and a member of The Hummingbird Society and the DuPage Birding Club, enjoys sharing information about our smallest local bird species. She’s had great success in attracting hummingbirds to her Naperville garden, and birding trips throughout the United States and to Peru, Costa Rica and the Amazon have enriched her knowledge of these fascinating birds.
Carroll will provide helpful information about hummingbird identification, the best plantings to attract them and what you should know about hummingbird feeders. She’ll even have some “approved” hummingbird feeders available for purchase.
DuPage Birding Club is one of the largest and most active birding organizations in Illinois. Its mission is to promote birding and bird conservation among its 300 members and the general public.
The club’s regular meetings often feature nationally known authors and speakers. Frequent field trips highlight the varied birding habits of DuPage County and greater Chicago. For more information, visit the club online at www.dupagebirding.org.
