Birding & Brunch at Ijams

Where are the hummingbirds? 

Well, my first two of the season appeared at my feeder on the back deck last evening just ahead of the thunderstorm.

(All Ages) Join me for this fun and lighthearted look into the world of everyone’s favorite avian pixie: the ruby-throated hummingbird. (They are about the size as the end of my thumb. See above.) We’ll also enjoy a light brunch and learn about the avian pixie’s biology and ways to make your yard hummingbird friendly. Preregistration is required. Go online to

My new book, Ephemeral by Nature, will be published this summer by the University of Tennessee Press. There's an entire chapter about the ephemerality—here one minute, gone the next—nature of hummingbirds.
