Please Report
Your Sightings!

We have our first report of a Rubythroat in Mexico! Many places in the U.S. and Canada are still seeing both males and females, but fewer males in the north than last week. Observers share tips to help hummers along!

Still seeing hummingbirds?
Please report sightings weekly. The goal of our map is to show where hummingbirds are present.
Your photos are welcome too!
