Astoria Public Library recently issued the following announcement.
Jewels of the Sky: a talk about hummingbirds
Wednesday, February 19, 2020 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Hummingbirds are described as the jewels of the sky. Lucky for us, two varieties of these beautiful pollinators make frequent appearances in Clatsop County. Join local bird enthusiast Barbara Linnett at the Astoria Library for a presentation and talk about hummingbirds. Admission is free. Linnett will discuss the difference between Clatsop County’s two types of hummingbirds. She’ll shed light on the why and how of hummingbirds’ spectacular displays and colorful feathers. And she’ll invite questions about feeding and otherwise helping the hummingbirds that inhabit our gardens and yards. Barbara Linnett has spent over eight years volunteering at the Wildlife Center of the North Coast, learning to care for migratory and local birds. She now specializes in baby songbirds and baby hummers. She is an amateur bird watcher, and she is creating a native plant garden to provide bird habitat in her yard.
