Overwintering Hummingbirds in the Lowcountry

March 2 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Overwintering Hummingbirds in the Lowcountry
Discovery Lecture Series
Monday, March 2 at 2 PM
Doreen Cubie

Doreen Cubie will discuss her research with Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, focusing on her banding study of wintering hummingbirds near Charleston, South Carolina. She will also discuss her research with Rubythroats from Manitoba to British Columbia, where she learned more about their northern and western limits of the breeding range and investigated whether South Carolina’s wintering Ruby-throated Hummingbirds migrate to Canada for the summer.

Doreen Cubie is a Master Bird Bander, one of only about 400 hummingbird banders in the US and Canada. She began studying wintering hummingbirds in the southeastern US in 2005. Her hummingbird research has been published in three peer-reviewed journals: Wilson Journal of Ornithology, Western Birds, and Journal of Field Ornithology. Doreen’s professional career was in publications, including a position as an editor with the National Wildlife Federation. During the last 20 years, she has worked as a freelance magazine writer, and her articles have been published in a number of national magazines, including National Wildlife, Audubon, Wildlife Conservation, Wilderness, and Natural History.

Cost is $7 per person and reservations are required by calling (843) 689-6767 ext. 223 or continuing online.
