Hum­ming­bird re­search con­tin­ues

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

“Pro­jetColibri”, a hum­ming­bird re­search pro­ject which is in its 6th sea­son, is look­ing for more peo­ple to par­tic­i­pate in the pro­ject. Birdwatchers are asked to take note of the ar­rival and de­par­ture of the ruby-throated hum­ming­bird in their area, as well as look for ones with a coloured mark on their back or chest. The best pe­riod for the dis­per­sion of these ‘marked’ hum­ming­birds is be­tween May 15th and June 15th.

Since 2006, 1,360 hum­ming­birds have been banded and marked. There are three band­ing sta­tions in op­er­a­tion in Que­bec: in Stoke; Berthier-sur-mer; and Mont-Lau­rier. For more in­for­ma­tion go to www.pro­jet­col­ib­ris.org.
