p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Rufous migration


Most of the Rufous Hummingbirds have now begun their migration south, back to Mexico. In May, the hummingbird research group was able to capture and band 50 in one day at our property. Yesterday, they only managed to capture and band 4. Although we are located on Vancouver Island, I believe once the Rufous reach the mainland, they move eastward to higher elevations. This allows them to access the mountain wildflowers on the western side of the Rockies as they move south.

On their migration north from Mexico to here, they followed the coast up to here, due to the warmer conditions and the early bloom of Spring flowers.

Very Interesting Tony!

Would you happen to have a link to this Rufous hummingbird research? I have always wondered about the migration. Wonderful & amazing wee creatures they are!

Lucky

btw .. A month ago my yard was buzzing with Rufous... still busy now with an abundance of Anna's. (More than I can ever recall seeing)

Lucky, the group that comes to band the Rufous is headed by:

As for migration, just Google "rufous migration" and you will come up with links such as:

Hope they spend a few days here on their way south Tony
One thing for sure I know they will all be well bathed and refreshed for their journey thanks to a kind soul up north
