Welcome to the 2015 Season
Help track hummingbird migration as the tiny migrants travel north from their wintering grounds.
Spring Migration
As spring advances, sunlight increases and a host of natural events are set in motion. Temperatures rise, ice melts, soil warms, plants grow, flowers bloom, and hummingbirds return. Which species of hummingbirds do you see in the spring? Report your sightings!

Get ready! Winter might feel like it's here to stay, but the rubythroats will be arriving soon. Watch the map for the first sightings of spring 2015.

Highlights: New Arrival or Wintering?
Get out the welcome mat! In warm regions, where hummingbirds are wintering, spotters will soon begin to see the new arrivals of spring.

New Arrivals
When it's time for the first migrants to arrive, how do you tell whether you're seeing a migrant or a wintering bird? Unlike the resident hummingbirds, a migrant isn't likely to stay in one area for more than a week—they're headed for their breeding grounds. Here's another clue: ...
Quote:
Wintering Birds
Not all hummingbirds migrate. Very young, or old, or sick birds often stick around in areas where food is available and weather is favorable.

They are supposed to arrive in Chapel Hill when the red buckeye blooms, and mine is ready to burst its buds open any day now. I will need to keep my eyes out for them and hang my feeders!

Rufous migration advanced into Canada while Ruby-throats continued to hug Gulf Coast states.
Quote:
It was a slow week. Ruby-throats continued to stay close to the Coastal areas during the past week, presumably waiting for more favorable weather before continuing north. Meanwhile more first sightings were reported from Coastal areas.
...
Rufous hummingbirds were reported along the Pacific Coast and north into British Columbia this week.
Quote:
Before your hummingbirds arrive each spring they must wait for sun-driven events that make their habitat ready. When will your habitat provide for a hummingbird's needs?

Ruby-throated hummingbirds should make a dramatic move northward in the week ahead. Bad weather has been holding them back.
Quote:
Ruby-throated hummingbirds are making little progress in their northward migrations. A series of slow-moving fronts and cooler air pushing southward have resulted in poor flying conditions. Southern observers are reporting warm temperatures and a flush of flower growth.

Rufous Hummingbirds
Rufous migration is on schedule. The northernmost sighting was at 49.7N. Find it on the map along the east coast of Vancouver Island.

Ruby-throat Reachs 38N
Taking advantage of southern winds this week, a Ruby-throat made it to Bicknell, Indiana (38.7N). Watch the wind to predict where and when Rubies will arrive in your backyard. Last week brought 90 new sightings most located between 32.5N and 35N.

Rufous Find Ready Habitat
Rufous are showing up early in Alaska and northern British Columbia this spring. Several have been reported around Juneau where salmon berries and blueberries are now in bloom. To the south, some Rufous are getting ready for nesting season.
