If there is a funky festival, it will be in the Mid-South.  I'm going to try to make the Hummingbird Migration Festival in Holly Springs, MS (about 30 minutes down the road).  Here's the skinny...it looks like great fun!  Lots of interesting activities.

I have a hummingbird living in my back yard now.  She's groovin' on the volunteer zinneas that came up from last year.  I probably need to plant some salvia next year, and see if I can get more of them.

We have a couple of them that hang out in our yard a lot. They love the honeysuckle and lilac bushes.

I did not go, but my brother and his girlfriend did.  She got to release one.  It just sat in her hand for a minute, "How do you do, Madam, are you enjoying the festival today?  GOOD!  Sorry, I gotta fly now..."

The festival sounds wonderful, I wish I could go! I didn't know they banded hummingbirds. Maybe you'll get to release one!
