Winter Hummingbirds, for the purpose of reference, are those that stay year round ("overwinter") in the United States and are found mainly in the Southwest regions. In recent years there has been an increasing number of sightings in the Southeast region of the country. The Rufous hummingbird is the most common sighted in the Southeast and sightings have been increasing in recent years.

We are excited for the 3rd year of this new project
of tracking "Winter Hummingbirds"!
We plan to continue our Winter Sightings Map in the years to come to observe and document the statistics of any change to hummingbird behavior during the winter months and where they inhabit North America.
If you are observing hummingbirds at your feeders this Winter, we would like to track the Winter population of hummingbirds with your sighting report.
We would like to see what species and where they are "overwintering" in the United States and Canada.
Learn about "Winter Hummingbirds" here!
Why Post Your Sighting?
Reporting your sightings will help to track any change in hummingbird behavior during the winter months.
It will also help others who live nearby who would like to attempt attracting "Winter Hummingbirds" to their home!
"Overwintering" Hummingbirds are increasing in numbers and expanse. That is another reason we recommend leaving your feeders up in the Fall for at least 2 weeks after you think you've seen the last of your visitors. You just might be one of the lucky ones to attract "Winter Hummingbirds" to their feeders!
Keep Your Feeders Warm
During Those Cold Snaps
"Hummingbird Feeder Heater"
The Hummingbird Feeder Heater is a simple, convenient solution to frozen feeders. The Hummingbird Heater will help both you and your hummingbirds through freezing conditions.
* No more swapping frozen feeders.
* No more venturing out before the crack of dawn to put out a thawed feeder.
* No more worrying about a feeder freezing when you're not home.

A Few of the Many Positive Reviews for Nature Hills!
"I ordered plants from Nature Hills 5 or 6 different times this spring and I was extremely happy with all the plants. They arrived very well packaged and in excellent condition. Nature Hills is my favorite of the 4 nurseries I ordered from this spring. The plants were often higher priced than other nurseries, but the plants were very large. They were also packaged better than the other nurseries. I'm willing to pay a little more for better quality.(Although the prices was sometimes higher, there was often a discount code or free shipping.)" - Paula S.
"I ordered primropp yellow lilacs. They arrived within 10 days. I was very impressed by the packaging the plants arrive in. I was very impressed by the stock of bare roots that arrived strong and healthy. The instructions that came with how to plant a bare-root plants plan excellent. I will definitely order from Nature Hills Nursery again."-Laureen K.
"A very good experience. Ordering
was a breeze, and although Mother Nature delayed a few products, shipping was quick. Any issues we have encountered have been dealt with, and their customer service has been awesome."-Patty T.
"Trees and plants arrived in great shape. They are really growing fast, just keep them watered. Would buy again, wonderful service."-Edward B.
"Plants were healthy and arrived in excellent condition!"-Abigail H.
