Hummingbirds, the most universally loved birds in the world, have a certain charisma, inspiring devotion and enthusiasm. Much the same thing can be said about Sedona as a geographical location. When the Hummingbird Society decided in 2012 to create the Sedona Hummingbird Festival, it combined the beauty of both hummingbirds and Sedona and virtually insured a successful, positive event. Dr. Hawkins takes a look at the species that bless Sedona with their presence, from the year-‘round, omnipresent Anna’s Hummingbird to the elusive Costa’s Hummingbird, whose movements are not well understood. The species and the timing of their presence will be the primary focus of his presentation, but there will be much to learn as he shares his detailed knowledge of these birds and their behavior.

Dr. H. Ross Hawkins is Founder and Executive Director of The Hummingbird Society, a nonprofit organization founded in 1996 with the mission of teaching about hummingbirds and working to protect the species at risk of extinction. Audiences of all types have applauded the entertaining and educational nature of Hawkins’ talks, which feature eye-popping hummingbird images and engaging stories about them. This lecture is included with regular park entrance fees. $7 for adults (14+) $4 for youth (7-13). However, seating is limited and reservations required. Please call 928-282-6907 to reserve your seats.
