Bird buzz: Wild Bird Unlimited hosts free workshop Sunday, April 15

The hummingbirds are back in our area but do they just pass through your garden? Come by on Sunday, April 15, at 2 p.m., when we will have a one hour seminar presented by hummingbird enthusiast Diana Collier of Greer, S.C., who will talk on how to attract and keep these tiny flying jewels in your garden. She is very knowledgeable about hummingbirds and their habits. We’ll talk about hummingbird migration, their nesting habits, feeder dos and don’ts, and preferred plants. She will have some of her beautiful photographs of the hummingbirds in her backyard to share with us.

The seminar is FREE and no reservation is necessary.
