Hummingbird Migration

Hummingbirds are fascinating creatures. One of the most amazing facts is the migration path for these birds. Most will winter in Central America and then spend their summers as far north as the boreal forest in Canada.

Some areas of the US such as Arizona will have the birds all year round but most make the long trip.

When you think that the ruby-throated hummingbird crosses the Gulf of Mexico twice a year that’s pretty amazing. Here’s a tweet I picked up of an Anna’s in Vancouver.
