Cape May Court House – The Cape May County Library invites the public to attend “Hummingbirds 101” presented by Pat Sutton at 6 p.m. on Monday, August 1st. The program will take place at the Main Branch Library located at 30 Mechanic Street, Cape May Court House.
It’s the peak of Ruby-Throated Hummingbird migration through Cape May County. Hummingbirds have been here since mid-April, raised one or several families and are now heading south to their winter home. Learn all about these unique and tiny birds, including how to attract them to your yard next spring. From 7-8 p.m., the group will visit Sutton’s nearby wildlife garden as countless hummingbirds feast on the plentiful insects and blooming flowers for the journey south.
Sutton has keenly studied the natural world for 30 years. Sutton and her husband, Clay, wrote the landmark book, Birds and Birding at Cape May, the in-depth result of their efforts over many years documenting and protecting the migration of birds and the Cape May area that they so love. Sutton’s wildlife garden is a teaching garden included on many tours and featured in programs and workshops she teaches.
