The 2021 hummingbird migration is almost here! For all of us hummingbird enthusiasts, the migration is the most anticipated time all winter long. We’ll start watching the progress on the migration maps in early March to see where they are. We usually put our first feeder up sometime around April 15th, depending on the weather and their progress on the migration map. Male ruby-throated hummingbirds show up first and the females follow one to three weeks later. This is what happens at least where we live in the suburbs of Philadelphia. We hang our feeder from a roof pent by our front door so we can look at it each time we walk past the door. It’s pretty exciting for us each year when we spot our first hummingbird.
