If you have questions about attracting hummingbirds to your garden, the Lewis and Clark State Historic Site will host its fifth Hummingbird Festival today, co-sponsored by the Lincoln Land Association of Bird Banders. Vernon Kleen, author and licensed bird bander, will be on site with a team of assistants and members of the Great Rivers Chapter of the Illinois Audubon Society.
He will give a talk for about an hour from 9am-10am, according to site manager Brad Winn.
