Decatur's Charlie Marooney, 8, gets to release a female hummingbird that was captured and banded by Vernon Kleen Tuesday during the Hummingbird Festival at Rock Springs Nature Center. Kleen, president of the Lincoln Land Association of Bird Banders, measured them and recorded each bird's gender and age. Hummingbirds return to the same area every year and if recaptured, the ID band will show travel habits, age and other data. The Macon County Conservation District hosted its fifth Hummingbird Festival on Tuesday and for $5 they could symbolically adopt a hummingbird and get the chance to release one. The event is co-sponsored by Decatur Audubon.
