Please Report
Your Sightings!

Sightings are fewer and farther between in the north, and hummers are still arriving at the Gulf Coast. Texas topped all states for the week's sightings. It's time to explore how hummers reach Mexico and Central and South America!

Week #6: Still seeing hummingbirds?
Please report sightings weekly. The goal of our map is to show where hummingbirds are present.
Your photos are welcome too!

Migration is an epic journey for a bird weighing less than a nickel and flying from Canada to Costa Rica. How do they decide the route to take?

If you were a Ruby-throated Hummingbird, which route would you choose?
