Hummingbird Research, Inc.
This is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2009 by Fred Bassett
to promote the conservation of hummingbirds through research and education.
They are a sister organization of the Hummer/Bird Study Group (HBSG).
The website for this group is at http://www.hummingbirdresearch.net/p1.html

These groups monitor population levels and the general condition of migrant birds,
as well as gaining important insights into the effects of weather on bird migration
More about this group can be found at http://www.hummingbirdsplus.org/FortMorganBanding.html

Thanks to Fred Bassett for allowing photographing of these birds.
