Presentation shows capturing, banding of hummingbirds

REND LAKE, IL (KFVS) -

Hummingbirds are some of the smallest, but most interesting creatures.

If you're fascinated with the small birds be sure to be at the Rend Lake Visitor Center on August 8.

Master Bird Bander Cathie Hutcheson will be on hand and will be capturing and banding these "beautiful jewels of the sky."

She'll explain how important information about the life and travels of the hummingbird is gleaned from the tiny band. The presentation starts at 2 p.m.

The next Saturday, August 15, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host another event, this one for bicycle enthusiasts.

The Rend Lake Bike Club will be at the visitor center to show you how to master cycling. Both events are part of the Corps' Science Series. If you'd like to get more information call 618-724-2493.
