The Feliciana Nature Society will hold their annual Feliciana Hummingbird Celebration on  Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016, at St. Francisville, Louisiana.  The Feliciana Hummingbird Celebration promotes the unique breeding habitat found in the St. Francisville area.  The event offers an opportunity to observe hummingbirds up close as they are banded at two private homes in the St. Francisville area on Saturday. Hummingbird-friendly plants will also be available for sale.

The festival will be held from 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Hummingbird biologists Linda Beall and Nancy Newfield will capture and band birds at two private gardens in the St. Francisville area.  Visitors will have the opportunity to observe hummingbirds up close as they are weighed and measured.  In addition, vendors will be at both homes with hummingbird-attractive plants available for sale.  The gardens include the home of Carlyle Rogillio at 15736 Tunica Trace (Hwy. 66) and Murrell Butler at 9485 Oak Hill Road. 

There is no fee for Saturday, but donations are more than welcomed.  Come and go as you please.
