Migratory Hummingbirds in My Backyard – Pet and Hobby 9

One of winter hummingbirds sitting on the branch.

I observed the hummingbirds in my backyard, they appear in some seasons, and disappear in other seasons.

The hummingbirds seem migratory birds in my place. One of hummingbirds is Rufous hummingbird, Selasphorus rufus.

This species seems visit my small garden when temperature quite lower. It means from Fall to Spring in Southern States of USA.

This little birds have winter ground in southern states (Texas, Louisiana) of USA, and even to countries such as Mexico.

Based on several resources, some states as Rufous hummingbirs breeding grounds are:

- Washington

- Oregon

- Canada

- Idaho

- Alaska


Little size of winter hummingbird compared to human fingers

Rufous hummingbird size is small with following distinct characteristics:

- body length size is 3.1 inch (8 cm).

- bill length is about 15 to 19 mm with slender and straight shapes.

- weight is around 0.12 oz

The bird range of migrating is quite stunning consider to its small size. It may flight to long distance of 2,000 miles or 3,200 km.

I love to observe this cute critter in the morning, 7.00 AM to 8.00 AM while drink a cup of coffee in my backyard, usually in the early fall and spring or when comfortable temperature.

Unfortunately, hummingbirds found only in the American continent, no in Europe or other continents.

  2. Do you have a lot of feeders? My grandpa loved feeding them so he had a lot of these year around back in Texas. We see only a few here in the midwest from time to time, but we don't feed them. Great post!

  4. Tanza, We have hummingbirds at our 2 feeders in the late Spring, all Summer and in the early Fall as well. They may be done visiting for this year by now. My wife rescued one that got stuck in one of our screens when fighting with another hummer... She freed him, stroked him and then he flew away. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  9. I have a niece in Colorado who has twelve hummingbirds visit her feeders. She has given them names and tells me she knows which ones are "nice" and which ones are bullies.
