Learn nearly everything there is to know about Texas’ hummingbird population at the annual Davis Mountains Hummingbird Celebration. Hear talks from experts in the field (seasoned birder and former president of the Texas Ornithological Society Victor Emanuel is the keynote speaker), enter to win door prizes and auction items, and, of course, head out on a field trip to see the beautiful creatures for yourself. There are various workshops throughout the four-day celebration on topics like feeding hummingbirds, gardening for hummingbirds, and the science behind hummingbirds. Anyone can appreciate the beauty of these magnificent little birds, whether or not they’re a professional birder.
