Friends of Hagerman are hosting BirdFest Texoma May 3-5 near Sherman, TX. Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge offers an 11,000 acre-plus home for wildlife - water, marsh, prairie and woods, with over 300 bird species sighted since the Refuge was established. Noted birder, painter, and author David Sibley is the keynote speaker. Jonathan Wood, master falconer and wildlife rehabilitator, has assembled a collection of feathered predators that is unrivalled in scope and size. Thirty-six birds will be presented in the Raptor Project show at BirdFest Texoma! Three full days of birding, wildlife and nature activities will make for a great weekend. We plan to be there!
If you find yourself in Hardy, Arkansas, stop and see Marc and Linda Herring at Ozark Classic Crafts Mall on Main Street. In addition to Ozarklake hummingbird feeders, you will find all kinds of wonderful handcrafted items.
Hummingbird fact for today: Feeders hung at the window attract as many hummers as feeders placed further from structures.
