Hummingbirds 101, Amy and Carl Wilms


APR 9- Hummingbirds 101, Amy and Carl Wilms, Indiana Audubon Societies, Mary Gray Bird Sanctuary

Hummingbirds 101 is intended to provide attendees with an overview of the hummingbird banding process while sharing information about the lives of these gems of the wing. Data from our past efforts will be shared along with eagerly anticipated future research plans. Participants will find our talk light-hearted, research oriented, and fun! There are more questions than answers, but our aim is to learn more about these fantastic birds!

Amy and Carl are Resident Managers for Indiana Audubon Society’s property, the Mary Gray Bird Sanctuary near Connersville, Indiana.  Amy is the Assistant to the Chair in Psychology at Miami University. Prior to meeting and marrying Carl, she knew nothing about bird watching.  She started banding in 2012 and earned her Master Banding Permits for songbirds, owls, and hummingbirds in 2017.  Carl is a retired middle school science teacher who earned his PhD in education in 2014.
