High Country Hummingbird Festival

Saturday, July 27, 2019

The Sipe Wildlife Area is located southeast of Eagar and Springerville. From Eagar, take Highway 191 toward Alpine for about two miles to the signed turnoff at the top of the first hill. Drive south five miles to the Sipe property on a gravel road suitable for passenger cars. The Arizona Game and Fish Department is offering a unique opportunity for people to learn more about Arizona’s colorful forest hummingbirds. Sheri Williamson, one of the nation’s foremost experts on hummingbirds, will lead a capture and bird-banding event with the invaluable assistance of a dedicated group of volunteers that is free and open to the public. Participants will be able to observe researchers up close as they handle, measure and band these flying jewels. The program begins at 8 a.m. and concludes at noon. Come prepared to spend most of the morning outdoors with the potential of some summer rain. It’s a good idea to bring a camera, as there will be plenty of great photo opportunities.
