Each year we go to the Hummingbird Festival held at the Strawberry Plains Audubon Center in Holly Springs, MS. We are never disappointed in the exhibits and craft vendors. Definitely a must see!

Attended a wonderful conference at Strawberry Plains. The grounds near the visitor center and house are well maintained. Plants and trees have plaques giving info on the various items. Got a chance to enjoy a quick tour of the house (first floor only) along with the history. The highlights of my day was taking one of the hiking trails to... More

I visited the recent hummingbird festival. I was surprised by the crowd in such a remote location. The festival takes place at the top of a hill. They offer transportation to the top. If you like to hike then bring your tennis shoes because the trails through the woods are lovely. The catch and release of the hummingbirds is a... More

Once again we came to the Center to attend the annual hummingbird festival. This is our 3rd or 4th time to attend this event. As another person noted, the entrance fee is a bit $$ but you are supporting this nature center with your admission. You have an opportunity to see banding, release, the historic home, grounds, and featured speakers.... More

This past weekend was the second time that I had attended this festival. I enjoyed both times very much. From the natural wildlife presentations to the hummingbird watching, it was all great. Go early to avoid the heat. The event is very well organized and for those who are afraid of having to hike too far, there are constant rides... More

I visited Strawberry Plains this weekend for their annual Hummingbird Festival and was amazed at all there is to do in addition to viewing hummingbirds. The hummingbirds can be viewed from the lovely ante-bellum home on the property, and you will also see them buzzing around the property. You can see hummingbird banding and if you are lucky, like my... More

We went to the Strawberry Plains Audubon Center for the annual hummingbird migration festival and were slightly disappointed. There were some very neat demonstrations and speakers, but unlike the name would imply, not many hummingbirds. We were able to see two birds banded and 2 at feeders and that was it for the day. The other parts of the center... More

What other nature preserve have you visited that has a lovely antebellum home on it? This is a unique and enjoyable place for anyone who likes nature or history and a real bonanza if you enjoy both. Strawberry Plains Audubon Center (SPAC) has 15 miles of hiking trails, scheduled events (check their website), tours of the antebellum home (see info... More
