AT -In-Person- Hummingbirds Friends of Hagerman Second Sat Program April 8
Hello Blackland Prairie Master Naturalist!
This is a Second Saturday free presentation by The Friends of Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge. This presentation will take place IN-PERSON at the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center Lecture Room.
Speaker: Dr. Wayne Meyer
Description: Hummingbirds are loved by almost everyone, but most people know very little about them. This program will focus on their evolution and convolution with nectar-bearing plants as well as how to attract them. We will also talk about how to identify the few species that live in Texoma as well as several species that are starting to make their presence known that weren’t here 30 years ago.
Dr. Wayne Meyer is an Associate Professor of the Biology department at Austin College, where he has been teaching for 30 years. He started birding at 13 in Connecticut. In 1993 he finally achieved his life’s dream of being paid to look at birds when he joined the faculty of Austin College. He has birded both coasts of the U.S. extensively and now has spent a quarter-century birding in Texas and Oklahoma.
The proximity of Austin College to Hagerman NWR has made research on prairie birds easy and convenient and he has been studying song learning and singing in Painted Buntings for over a decade. Meyer is also a sought-after speaker for Master Naturalist groups and a frequent speaker at the Friends of Hagerman NWR Second Saturday programs.
