There are more hummingbirds in my yard. WE WENT TODAY AND SAW THREE HUMMERS, ONE IN A FEEDER CAGE, TWO BEING BANDED. There is junk to buy, low end festival items and t-shirts. STAY AWAY.

What a great place to visit! Wonderful birds, especially hummers migrating south in fall. The hummingbird festival in September is not to be missed. Three day event with hummingbird banding, speakers and kid activities.
