Only a few more months and these little flying jewels will be visiting my garden again!
The January-February 2015 issue of Bird Watcher’s Digest features an article written about an educator, friend, scientist, and birding mentor, Dr. Bill Hilton, Jr.
I had the privilege of studying Rubythroat Hummingbirds in their Costa Rican wintering grounds with Bill, his colleague, Ernesto Carman, Jr. and a team of fellow citizen scientists in February ’09.
This article captures some of what Dr. Hilton’s “Operation Rubythroat” has achieved.
If you’re looking for a great way to make a contribution to science while taking an awesome (tax-deductible) winter vacation to a lovely, warm Central American destination, consider signing up for one of these “expeditions”!
Wishing a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year to all!
