CFUW Georgetown – Hummingbird Migration
April 5 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
CFUW Georgetown in partnership with the Halton Hills Public Library invite you to explore the fascinating world of one of the largest families of birds. Hummingbirds are tiny little guys that will surprise you, make you laugh, and leave you pondering the question that has left scientists stumped for years: just where did hummingbirds come from? Richard Tofflemire joins us to discuss how this beloved backyard bird overcomes the hardships that they must endure every day.
Richard Tofflemire was born in Don Mills, Ontario. He spent his childhood exploring the Don River valley, often bringing home critters to keep as pets. His parents were supportive but had a strict rule about keeping wild things. As a teenager, Richard was always looking for a way to go “up north” camping and canoe tripping. Hawks were his first love. He started trying to identify them as a young boy and got so good that his parents used to tell him that someday birds would be a guiding force in his life. Then Richard met his wife, whose second love interest was insects. Together they go walking in the woods, taking a long time to cover a short distance as there is always something to see and explore at their feet or overhead.
