Wonder of Hummingbirds Festival in Knoxville, TN
The event features speakers on nature topics, wildlife educational demonstrations, and vendors selling food and drinks, plants, locally made arts and crafts, bird feeders and supplies, and garden items. The main highlight of this event is the opportunity for visitors to get close to Ruby-throated hummingbirds and learn about them during banding demonstrations by Mark Armstrong, certified Master Bander.
August and September are busy migration months in Tennessee with thousands of hummingbirds moving south on their way to wintering grounds in Central America and southern Mexico. Hummingbirds are harmlessly captured, weighed, measured and banded before being sent on their way. Bring your camera!
