Coastal Branch Library Prime Time: Hummingbirds
Coastal Branch Library's Prime Time Winter Program presents Fred Bassett speaking on the preservation of hummingbirds.
Fred is a retired Air Force officer who has worked with birds for over 20 years. Fred bands all types of birds each April and October at the Fort Morgan banding station on the Gulf Coast and travels each summer to study hummingbirds in western states. During the winter he documents western hummingbirds wintering in south Alabama and Florida, and in the last fifteen winters he has captured more than 2,000 hummingbirds of ten different species in the area. Results of his research have been published in several national publications.
