“Hummingbird don’t fly away, fly away, don’t fly away.” I’m sorry, when I think of that fairy-tale creature, the hummingbird, the mind naturally conjures up Seals & Croft’s ’70s AOR hit. Of course, the Tinkerbell-size flapper will be returning to our area later this month after wintering in Central America. S&C are pretty much extinct. If one wishes to attract those delightful warblers—the birds, not Jim and Dash—wing on down to the slide show/lecture, “Wings and Wildflowers,” with naturalist Denise Gibbs, and learn which plants and flowers are most hummingbird-enticing. At 2 p.m. at the Wild Bird Center, 4926 Wisconsin Ave. NW. FREE. (202) 244-9453. (DN)
