Whidbey Wonders: All About Hummingbirds

February 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Oak Harbor Library, 1000 SE Regatta Dr.          —
Tiny but pugnacious, Whidbey Island’s three hummingbird species are some of
the most fascinating of our local bird life. Their physical characteristics and behaviors
make them unique in the avian world. In this program led by local naturalists
and Coupeville residents Steve and Martha Ellis, you’ll discover how hummingbirds
feed, fly, and raise their young, and you’ll marvel at the intricacies of their nest. You’ll also be awed by the Rufous Hummingbird migration and the ability of Anna’s Hummingbirds to cope with winter.

Steve and Martha Ellis have been leading walks and giving talks on a wide range of natural history topics for more than 30 years. Steve is a former president
of Whidbey Audubon Society; Martha is a member of the Washington Native Plant
