Hummingbird Month at the Nature Station

hummingbird2 300GOLDEN POND, Ky. (8/3/14) — August is peak hummingbird season in Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area.

During August, hundreds of hummingbirds stop by the Nature Station’s gardens and feeders to rest and to fuel up for their migratory journey south.

Special hummingbird programs will be presented throughout August and are included with the price of admission. Regular admission to the Nature Station is $5 ages 13 and older, $3 ages 5 to 12, and free for 4 and younger.

On Sundays at 3 p.m., guests can attend “Hummingbird 101.” This “intro course” in their air conditioned Theater will provide interesting facts including how you can help these tiny birds along their way.

On Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10 a.m., Nature Station guests can help staff refill the many backyard feeders during this daily ritual. People will understand why this program is called “Hummingbird Feeding Frenzy.” The best time to see the hummingbirds up close is at feeding time.

Thursdays in August will offer special bird programs at 2 p.m. in the Nature Station theater. These include:

  • August 7, Backyard Birding: From Hummingbirds to Hawks

  • August 14, Migration Miracles

  • August 21, Hummingbird Folklore

  • August 28, Beautiful and Bizarre Birds of Land Between The Lakes

On three Saturdays in Aug. 9, 16, and 23 at 9 a.m., the Nature Station will open up to 10 people to enjoy photographing the hummingbirds, butterflies, and native plants, as well as captive wildlife such as the red wolves and bobcat, during their most active time of day. Cost is $10 per person per session. Reservations can be made by calling (270) 924-2020.
