Their stock changes from day to day even hour to hour, so it is almost impossible to keep up with it. As a result, you may get a notification that your order is on backorder for a short time.

Fall Migration Map
Welcome to the Hummingbird Fall Migration Map 2020.
In Fall, the annual
hummingbird migration south begins! Hummingbirds travel from their Summer homes in North America to a warmer Winter climate escaping the harsh weather in the north. During the migration some of us will see a huge influx in the hummingbird population at their feeders.
During the Fall Migration hummingbirds engage in a "Feeding Fury" to store energy as fat to power their way south. This is a good time to help by hanging extra feeders to provide much needed accommodations for their long journey.
The migration usually starts in August in the far north and will vary according to the state you live in and
the species of hummingbirds you will see. They tend to gather in some southern states because by chance they arrive at the same time. It is not because they travel in flocks.
Use our submission form to post your sightings to our Hummingbird Migration Fall 2020 page!
Give them a helping hand during the Fall Migration by hanging extra feeders such as the Dr. JB's Feeder!

MAP SUBMISSION FORM
Fill out the form below to share "your LAST sighting of Fall 2020".
Those, who are south of you and anxiously awaiting the Fall arrivals, will be able to track them through your posts when they are getting close.
Please try to estimate the LAST time you had a hummingbird visit your feeder(s).
Please DO NOT submit random sightings, it will not help anyone. We are looking for the LAST visits to your feeder(s) for the season.
If you see hummingbirds at your feeders everyday and do not see as many or no visitors for 2 days, they have probably left for the season. At this point, submit that last day you had hummingbirds visit your feeders.
HINT: Some of our visitors who have a good idea of the last visit to their feeders from year to year and know it is getting close to their departure, will write down the date each day or mark a calendar with a sighting until there are no more.
NOTE: You will not see your submission immediately on the map below, your sighting submissions will be periodically updated throughout the day.
Please submit just ONE sighting.......
(Your VERY LAST Sighting of 2020).
PROCESS FOR REPORTING A FALL MIGRATION SIGHTING:
- Observe hummingbirds at your feeders each day
- You don't see any visitors for 2 (two) days to your feeders
- Report the LAST date you had hummingbirds at your feeders

We thank you for participating in tracking the hummingbird migration for the Fall 2020 with your sighting submission.
