As promised, I’m posting a video of our visit to Yerette – Home of the Hummingbird.
The owners, Gloria & Theo Furguson share a home with the hummingbirds on the lush Maracas Valley nestled in the Northern Range of our island. If you visit, you will have the opportunity to have a close-up experience of seeing thirteen of the seventeen species of hummingbirds recorded in Trinidad & Tobago which is also known as “The Land of the Hummingbird.” Theo told an intriguing background story behind the origin of that name. He has a vast knowledge of the birds and shared all that he knew with us. He even photographs the birds and has a lovely display of colours and cuteness at the gift shop.
For those who love their bellies, they also provide a snack which is included in the cost for your visit. So you don’t have to walk with you own 😛
Rob and I really enjoyed the experience. Hearing the humming of the wings, the chirping as they communicated with each other and seeing the little beauties frolic through the garden was entertaining.
I hope you enjoy my short video and make a visit some time!
