Journey North
Hummingbirds are on the move. Rufous are moving into the Rocky Mountains while ruby-throats are headed up the Atlantic Coast.
Rufous Moving Into the Rockies
The migration moves up the Pacific Coast first, where temperatures are warmer in the springtime. Next the hummingbirds move eastward and into the Rocky Mountain region. Right now, the northernmost hummingbird has reached Alaska and the westernmost has arrived in Idaho.
Ruby-throats Moving Up Atlantic Coast
Strong south winds and warm temperatures brought ruby-throated hummingbirds to Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and up the Connecticut River valley to Vermont this week.

"We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us.
When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."
