Hummingbird migration patterns and behaviors.

Some species, like the Ruby-throated Hummingbird, cross the Gulf of Mexico during migration.

Spring migration typically occurs from March to May, while fall migration happens from August to October.

Availability of nectar-producing flowers influences migration timing, ensuring food resources along the route.

Some species use direct routes while others take detours to find suitable feeding and resting spots.

Hummingbirds play a vital role in pollination, particularly of tubular flowers with long corollas.

Male hummingbirds establish and defend territories during breeding season, but migration reduces territorial behavior

Habitat loss and climate change threaten hummingbird populations and disrupt migration patterns.
