Monthly Meeting Set for May 20
(Please note the May meeting date is moved up because of Memorial Day to the third Monday of the month, the 20th.)
Hummingbird feeding and watching has exploded in popularity over the past 15 years. Putting up hummingbird feeders is the first step in attracting hummers to your yard; but what you plant can make the difference between your garden attracting hummingbirds and other species or being passed by. Our May 20th speaker, Chuck Otte, one of the authors of Birds of Kansas, will discuss the best plants and other factors that will make your yard more hummingbird, and bird, friendly.
