Free Webinar: How High-Energy Hummingbirds Survive

August 3 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Free

Hummingbirds delight us with their brilliant colors and dizzying flight. But all that nonstop activity comes at a high energy cost, so how do hummers meet their calorie needs? Join researchers Anusha Shankar from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Erich Eberts from the University of Toronto Scarborough as they share what they’ve learned about how hummingbirds use energy. Discover the demands of migration, the nesting season, and even just getting through the night! Plus learn how sleep differs from torpor. We’ll also spend time answering your questions about these flying jewels during live Q&A.
