thank you WBIR Channel 10

Did you know that a ruby-throated hummingbird only weighs...

3 grams?

WBIR morning news anchor, Katie Roach
Thank you WBIR Channel 10 producer Sarah Ferraro. Early this morning (6:40) I was on their Saturday morning show to talk with news anchor Katie Roach about today's KTOS Wonder of Hummingbirds Festival at Ijams.

And two hours later, we are welcoming hundreds of people. All to celebrate the absolute wonder of those tiny feathered miracles that only weigh 3 grams. That's the same as two dimes. And heart rates up to 1200 beats a minute.

Thank you my friend Billie Cantwell for your months of hard work as event planner and organizer.

We attended the Strawberry Plains Hummingbird festival in Holly Springs, MS a couple of years ago. It must have been similar to yours. We enjoyed it very much and there was much to see and do. I hope to go back again in early September.
