Want to hang out with a huge spectacle of a tiny bird that fascinates so many? Join in the Hummingbird Festival where Illinois Audubon Society members will teach you how to welcome these creatures into your backyard. You can also gaze upon the Sangamon River Audubon Society members’ hummingbird feeders and observe the inspection and banding of birds that soon will migrate to Central and South America for winter.
