Rufous Hummingbird in the Neighborhood - Nature and Wildlife 29

Male Rufous is one of migration hummingbirds

Our state, Louisiana has at least 9 species hummingbirds, of these, ruby-throat only has breeding season in the state.

Some have arrived in the state at the end of summer season or about August each year.

The hummingbirds which visit our state far before winter are:

- Rufous

- Anna's

- Allen's

- Buff-bellied

- Calliope

- Black-chinned

- Broad-tailed

- Broad-billed


In number, approximately 700 hummingbirds have been watched and counted in the recent year.


Trees in the winter, just illustration

These 700 hummingbirds are recorded from July 2020 until February 2021. Then, most of them disappeared on March.

The birds migrate back to the northwest region.

Rufuous is one of hummingbirds frequently visited our neighborhood every year. We have at least 6 species.

Some of our neighbors believed that few of these species had adapted to our hot summer temperatures, because they may see hummingbirds all seasons.

I don’t know is it true or just imaginations, since I saw hummingbirds at my backyard around January to February every year, never saw hummingbirds in other seasons.

How about with your state or neighborhood? Do you observe hummingbirds all season?

  10. Tanza, Too early for hummingbirds here in East Tennessee but we do love them. They are very territorial and defend their feeder from each other. We had one get in a fight and get driven into one of our screens where its beak was caught. My wife freed it...no damage done to the bird. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    1. Hummingbird is an American bird, so we can't find them in any other continents

  19. There are, indeed, hummingbirds all around in B.C., including my backyard. They dart about so quickly it is difficult to get a picture. The Rufous Hummingbird is common but there are, no doubt, many other varieties. Their rapid actions can be a bit mesmerizing. :)

  20. En el jardín de mi comunidad hay varias variedades de aves, tales como Gorriones, cotorras, hurracas, mirlos e incluso palomas. No creo que sean muy exóticos verdad?
    Muchas gracias por tu visita y te mando un saludo desde Madrid

  22. In my yard (Southern Tier of New York State, near the Pennsylvania border), I only have seen ruby throated. I would love to see one of the other species.
