1) We Need Your Help!
Due to the Google Penguin algorithm changes starting in April 2012, our website can no longer be easily found on Google search. Starting in 2011 and continuing, Google has been making the biggest changes in “Search” in 15 years. As it turns out these changes favor the largest sites and many smaller websites like hummingbird-guide.com have lost placement. However, Google is relying more on “Social” to give some credit to site search results. If you enjoy the Hummingbird Guide, we would really appreciate your help in spreading the word about hummingbird-guide.com.
The Long Awaited Hummingbird Migration 2013!
Use our Hummingbird Migration Map 2013 to see the progress of the migration. With this, you can estimate the arrival of your "Hummers"! Post your sightings to help everyone get ready. Scientists are telling us that in some states the hummingbirds maybe returning before the flowering plants are in full bloom. So they need our feeders more than ever.
We are not basking in the 80 degree sunshine like last spring. Nonetheless it has been another mild winter in Vermont. So Jim and I hadn’t been dreaming (too much anyway this year) of joining the hummingbirds basking in the Caribbean sunshine. There is word from the scientists that the hummingbirds have been returning weeks earlier in recent years. They believe it is the changing climate. We like to think it’s the sweet nectar we have waiting for them at our feeders in anticipation of their return to us.
You can follow the migration sightings and post yours when the time comes.
You can get an estimation of this years arrival in your area by going to our Migration Sighting/Map of 2012 to see when they arrived last year.
See the Spring Migration Map 2012 to help you estimate the arrival of hummingbirds in your area.
