Rufous HummingbirdHummingbirds’ Migration Marathon

Could you finish a marathon race? How about 38 of them, a distance just under 1,000 miles?

Well, as crazy as it sounds, that’s what some hummingbirds are doing right now.

The next couple of months are your best opportunity to see hummingbirds. Adult hummingbirds are now joined by a horde of juveniles as they head back from Central America and their winter territories, some traveling thousands of miles. Watch the Ruby-throated Hummingbird's northward migration at: www.hummingbirds.net

It’s estimated that more than seven million Ruby-throated Hummingbirds return from the tropics each spring, along with six million Rufous, three million Broad-tailed, and millions of other individuals of various hummingbird species.

En route to their destination, hummingbirds will take part in an eating binge so be sure to have your hummingbird feeders filled with a nectar solution.

Visit us soon, and we’ll make sure you have everything you need to enjoy these miniature migrating marathoners.
