Join us on Thursday, September 19th, 2019 for our 3rd Annual Flights of Fancy event! Enjoy an engaging evening with guest speaker, Susanne Maidment, talking all about hummingbirds!

The natural world is a fascinating place. I’ve been lucky to have opportunities to travel, hike, bicycle, camp, photograph and enjoy the great outdoors. Banding birds (owls and passerines) opened doors to appreciate birds up close, to further admire their strength, beauty and adaptability. Then in 2006 I began banding hummingbirds. Wow – to hold a wild, healthy hummingbird is an honour! It is a thrill to watch them fly away, with a new band on their leg, to continue on their journey of life. Hummingbirds really are the flying jewels of our world!” – Susanne Maidment
