InFocus visits with Carol Phemister and Kathy Hutchinson of Carbondale to find out more about hummingbirds. Phemister explains that about 1,000 of the birds visit her garden each year, consuming 4 pounds of sugar per day. While demonstrating how she and Phemister band the tiny creatures, Hutchinson points out the physical and behavioral characteristics of hummingbirds and discusses their migration patterns. Both women share their research goals and why they are involved in this unique activity.
