Carol Phemister gives WSIU's Jak Tichenor a guided tour of her hummingbird sanctuary in rural Carbondale and offers tips on how to make gardens more attractive for these tiny visitors. Phemister has nurtured her beautiful garden over almost a decade, which attracts thousands of hummingbirds each year. With the help of a group of friends, Phemister has also helped researchers track the birds' migration patterns from Central America to the United States by gently trapping them and giving them identification bands. Find out more about hummingbirds from the Hummingbird Society.
