Explore: Good Hummer Habitat

By the end of fall migration, hummingbirds have funneled into a relatively small region for the winter. As you compare landmass, realize why conservation of winter habitat is so important. Hummingbirds that visited your feeders or flowers during the breeding season or migration need protected habitat all along their journey, and at both ends too. Plant flowers now for next spring's hummers.

Where are your hummingbirds going for winter?
