Marking individual hummingbirds remains essential to assess population size, migration corridors, and survival. Genetic and statistical analyses are complementing and expanding understanding of these important migratory pollinators. Learn about Rocky’s hummingbird populations and their habitats while observing field ornithologists as they safely capture and band these remarkable birds. Visit typical habitats, observe and identify types of food sources, and learn about factors influencing hummingbird survival. ♦♦ Meets at the Rocky Mountain Conservancy Field Institute (uses Hidden Valley to net birds)
