From Alaska to the high Andes of South America, join Benny Jacobs-Schwarz as he leads us on an exploration of the magic of hummingbirds! With over 360 species recognized globally, he will discuss their remarkable biology, expansive range, ecological significance, and the best way to attract them to your yard. Benny’s presentation is enhanced by stunning photos and educational videos. Plus, a local hummingbird ID section is included.

Benny Isaac Jacobs-Schwartz (aka BIJS) works seasonally as a naturalist, expedition trip leader, and international bird guide. Most recently his work has been in coastal Alaska, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Ecuadorian cloud forest. While back at home base in Los Angeles, he leads public and private birding adventures to urban hotspots, where he inspires others to conserve the open spaces around them and look up more often from their phones! He is also a passionate photographer, specializing in birds. He is owner and operator of BIRDS by BIJS (pronounced Bee-jus).
