September Welcomes the Ruby Throated Hummingbirds

It is nearing the end of summer and that means the Ruby Throated Hummingbirds are migrating South and stopping by my garden for a rest and to fuel up. The Black Throated hummingbirds are in my garden all year but the Ruby Throated guys come through only in the spring and late summer/fall.

You can report any hummingbird Fall migration activities at the Journey North learning website here:


Reporting the hummers movement to their wintering grounds helps scientists understand their migration habits better.
