Count the number of hummingbirds of each species you see on your property during these seven days.   Take pictures, keep track of how many times a day you need to refill your feeders, etc.   Send all your information to “Attention: Birding” (in the subject line of your email) at oakridgeranchwma@gmail.com.   We’d love to share you pictures with others here on the website.

Live life outdoors!   Have fun watching these beautiful little birds!

We have two feeders and are seeing approximately a dozen Hummingbirds at each feeder. Photo by B.LaVergne, 08-27-2013.

  1. As our RTHU hummers migrate, it is interesting to note the research regarding their fall migration, suggesting large numbers head south circum-gulf rather than trans-gulf.

  2. We only had one feeder out and the most we had on any given day was 3-5 hummingbirds. But when Wednesday September 4th rolled around all of a sudden our feeder is completely swarmed with hummingbirds 10-15 or more. What a difference a day makes.
