      Along with mad dogs and Englishmen the rest of you might enjoy coming out in
      the noon-day sun to witness the magic of migration. Thousands of
      hummingbirds fly right through the Kern River Valley in late July and early
      August. Don't tell the birds but they think it is autumn. Six species of
      hummingbirds are traveling south on their annual migration.
      The Kern River Preserve in Weldon celebrates this phenomenon on July 24-25
      from 7 am to 8:30 pm on Saturday and 7 am to 5 pm on Sunday.
      The entrance to Audubon-California's Kern River Preserve is located at 18747
      Hwy 178 in Weldon, alongside the scenic South Fork of the Kern River. It is
      fifty-seven miles northeast of Bakersfield, Kern County, California.
      The complete schedule for the 6th Annual Hummingbird Celebration is found on
      our festival webpage: http://www.valleywild.org/hummer_fest_activities.htm
      For directions and maps to the preserve visit our webpage;
      For information call: (760) 378-3044.

      This is a free event sponsored by Audubon California's Kern River Preserve,
      donations to this 501C3 organization help fund these festivals and other
      educational programs.
