Hummingbird Journal Off the Press
Where in the world do hummingbirds live? Exploring the increasing diversity of hummingbird species from north to south in the Western Hemisphere is just one activity featured in the new Junior Birder Journal. 

Western Hummingbird Partnership is supporting the development of materials that engage teachers, youth, and families in learning about hummingbirds. This handy, 22-page booklet has information and activities about courtship behavior, flight, nesting, the importance of keeping cats indoors, and more. The journal will be available in Spanish soon.
