North Arm Farm Hummingbirds
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
Dinner time for hummers at North Arm Farm.
