Description: 
Each late-August and early-September, ruby-throated hummingbirds gather in the marsh at Weldon Springs State Park to feast on the nectar of spotted jewelweed flowers before their annual migration southward.

Get a close-up look at this tiny winged jewel and the fascinating wildflower that helps fuel its high-energy existence.  Join us at the marsh, below Chautauqua Picnic Area.  Participants should feel free to come and go anytime throughout the afternoon.
