Sightings Continue During the Winter Months

Journey North citizen scientists have sighted a few early hummingbird migrants who join resident hummingbirds at the feeder. 

From Trinidad, CA: As Jim comments, “Our first two Rufous hummingbirds sharing a feeder with two resident Anna’s hummingbirds. The Rufous had to battle their way into the feeders at first, but seem to be co-existing with the Anna’s after a few battles.” (02/19/2019)

From Baton Rouge, LA: Michka found a beauty at the backyard feeder, “Broad-billed Hummingbird was in our yard beginning on Sunday, February 10, 2019 until Saturday, February 16, 2019.” (02/10/2019)
