The Hummingbird Whisperer (226 Species and Counting) @ Heller Nature Center | Highland Park | Illinois | United States

Denis Kania, former natural areas manager for the St. Charles Park District, has seen 226 of the world’s 360+ hummingbird species in his international travels, and he continues to be in awe of these tiny pollinators because of their diversity as well as their unique behaviors. They can fly upside down and backwards, have adapted to disparate habitats and climates, have a fascinating relationship with plants, and more.  Denis will discuss hummingbird biology and behavior and also share many of the images and stories he has gathered in his quest to see as many as these dazzling fliers as possible.
