 Hummingbird Festival Success
Sheri Williamson, researcher and author signs her Field Guide to Hummingbirds at the San Miguel Hummingbird Festival.
The 1st International Hummingbird Festival in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico was a huge success, thanks to the efforts of dozens of volunteers, El Charco del Ingenio Botanic Garden, Audubon Society of Mexico, and sponsors, such as Camino Silvestre, the beautiful city of San Miguel, and numerous restaurants and hotels.

Among the many highlights of the weekend were presentations by researchers and educators from Mexico, the U.S., and Canada, including Dr. Coro Arizmendi of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (Mexico DF), Samuel Lopez of Museo de Aves (Coahuila), and Sheri Williamson, Director of Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory. The event also included children's programs, films, and bird walks.
 
Plans are already underway for the 2014 event. Are you hosting a hummingbird-focused program or event? Share it with us, so we can pass it along to others.
