US Hummingbird Migration

Spread the love

People in central or northern United States (excepting the Pacific Coast) need to get their hummingbird feeders ready, but don’t put them out until the birds are about to arrive! One of the more common mistakes people make with hummingbird feeders is putting them out too late. That’s like opening your lunch restaurant at 1:00PM. If you had a lunch restaurant that you could open, which you don’t. Another mistake is putting the feeder out, with the “nectar” in it, too early so the sugary liquid goes bad. That’s like getting the salad bar in your impossible lunch restaurant all ready the day before. Fake nectar doesn’t wilt, but it does go bad.

In order to make this work, you can use the Hummingbird Central Spring Migration map. Click here to visit it. This is what it looks like this morning:

Most people will not need a A Field Guide to Hummingbirds of North America, because there are not a lot of different species. But if you do, the Peterson guide is probably the best.

Have you read the breakthrough novel of the year? When you are done with that, try:

In Search of Sungudogo by Greg Laden, now in Kindle or Paperback
