At-home Atlanta Audubon Society event to explore the life of hummingbirds

As people spend more time at home these days, there seems to have been an uptick in amateur bird watchers looking out their windows.

And for any bird watcher, the hummingbird can be particularly memorizing, perhaps because of the sheer determination of their fast-fluttering wings. That fascination is the basis of an upcoming online event being put on by the Atlanta Audubon Society.
