North Arm Farm Hummingbirds

May 1st Dusk at the farm

Rufous Hummingbirds pass through the Pemberton Valley every spring.  Some stay for the summer but others    are just marshalling until the weather moderates on the Chilcotin Plateau. This cool spring creates the conditions where many hummers congregate here in the valley.  How they know that they need to stay in Pemberton longer than usual  is a question that has always vexed me.  
We have been putting out feeders and watching the antics for many years.  Its too bad that my cel phone camera doesn't capture the audio very well  as the chirping and humming and swooping are a huge part of a hummingbird experience at the Farm
