June 2019 Program Topic

Hummingbirds — Amazing Avian Aviators

         Hummingbirds are on the move, flying north through Texas from their wintering grounds in Mexico and Central America.  If you want to lure them to your yard, Audubon Society member Victoria Moore has lots to share about the hummers of Northeast Texas. She will be the speaker at the Cross Timbers Chapter meeting of the Native Plant Society of Texas on June 13 in Weatherford.  

         Hummingbirds are unique in the avian world: they’re the tiniest of all bird species; they can hover and fly up, down and backwards; they have a huge energy output that can go from zero to 60 mph in three feet! And they are only found in the Americas.

         Moore will discuss the identification, feeding, nesting and behaviors of the hummer species seen here as well as other species in the United States. 

         Moore is  treasurer for the Fort Worth Audubon Society and a member of its board for 7 years. She volunteers with the Botanical Research Institute of Texas in Fort Worth. She spent 35 years with American Airlines and retired from its corporate security operations.

         The meeting will be Thursday, June 13, at 6:30 p.m. at Mount Pleasant School, 213 Raymond George Way in Weatherford. Visitors are welcome and light refreshments will be available.

         The mission of the Cross Timbers Chapter is to promote the conservation, research and use of native plants and plant habitats in Texas through education, outreach and example.  For more information visit https://npsot.org/wp/crosstimbers.
