    The Hummer/Bird Study Group (HBSG) is a non-profit organization [iRS-501c3] founded by Bob and Martha Sargent of Clay, Alabama. It is dedicated to the study and preservation of hummingbirds and other Neo-tropical migrants (songbirds). The research programs with hummingbirds and migrating songbirds have been under way since 1987. In the early days the Sargent's savings account paid the expenses incurred. Since then many friends and bird conservationists have contributed financially to the cause. Bob & Martha wanted these donations to be tax-deductible. Thus, HBSG was formed in 1994 as a child of the necessity to support the continuing research as well as reward those who contributed financially to that effort. Through memberships and numerous fund raising activities, HBSG is able to support the research of dozens of banders and raise the environmental awareness of many thousands of people a year. As of October 2004, the membership totals over 2000 members from 43 states and 5 countries. The majority of HBSG members live in the southern United States; but as nationwide publicity increases, our membership base will broaden to encompass much of the continental United States.
