Chicago Botanic Garden reminds us which native flowers feed hummingbirds

chicagobotanicgarden | August 27, 2010  | We learned some interesting things about hummingbirds in this interview with Ecologist Jim Steffen. You’ll find hummingbirds in many of our 24 display gardens and in our three native habitats. You’ll also find many other resident and migratory birds at the Chicago Botanic Garden because of the diversity of plant life. Visit http://www.chicagobotanic.org/birds for more information on birding at the Garden.
