NEXT MEETING


DATE: Tuesday, May 13, 2014

TOPIC: Hummingbirds — Magic in the Air

For our last monthly meeting until September, after the coffee break we’ll be showing a spectacular documentary that was produced in 2010 by Thirteen as part of the long-running PBS Nature series.

Hummingbirds are the smallest warm-blooded creatures on the planet. With wings that beat up to 200 times every second, they are among nature’s most accomplished athletes, the only birds able to hover, fly backwards, and even fly upside down. Because they live their lives in fast forward, much of their fascinating world is typically lost to human perception. But using cameras able to capture over 500 images a second, the hummingbirds’ magical world can finally be seen and appreciated. Amazing footage shows these little powerhouses are far more than delicate nectar gatherers — they are also deadly predators. These tiny marvels dazzle and delight bird-watchers all over the world, and this program reveals their stunning abilities as they have never been seen before.
