The 2016 Hummingbird Migration Has Started!

They're predicting temps in the 40's and 50's and maybe even hit 60 next week here in Vermont.

Downright "Balmy", time to get out the shorts and sunglasses!

We have received hummingbird sightings in the south this past week.

So far, it seems to be the usual start time for our beloved hummingbirds.

New This Year, You can submit your sightings to our "Month by Month List" of sightings and our "Interactive Migration Map"!

Please post your sightings to help everyone following the migration.

Hummer Helper Nesting Material Kit

This is a good time to get your "Hummingbird Gear" out!

Check your feeders for damage or leaks and maybe replace them. Make sure they are clean and you have all the accessories you need such as an ant moat to keep those pesky ants off your feeders or a "Hummer Helper Helmet" to shade your feeders in the hot sun.
