Hummingbird Migration 2019
Grade K-7 learners from Eugene Joseph Elementary School came out Chuzghun (Tezzeron Lake) to visit the tl'alhchooẕ (hummingbirds) during their spring migration this year. They learned about photoperiodism, phenology, and pollination. They also learned just how charismatic these little warm-blooded pollinators can be! A small forest fire near our banding station has pushed our resident birds off-site, but they seem to be arriving on time and in their usual numbers elsewhere in the North!
