Celebrate National Pollinator Week

Celebrate National Pollinator Week

Media stories about the decline of bees and Monarch butterflies have brought to our attention
the role pollinators play in perpetuating nearly 75% of crops and native plant communities. The
bird world includes pollinators, too, with hummingbirds, which occur only in the Western
Hemisphere, being the most well-known. Their jewel-colored feathers, rapid wingbeats, and
ability to hover captivate us so much that we may forget the important ecological function they
are performing as they feed at nectar-bearing flowers. Learn how you can help hummingbirds
and other pollinators at the Pollinator Partnership’s website, www.pollinator.org.
