When hummingbird numbers increase at feeders during August, it is usually the result of stopovers by more northern birds in migration.

Ruby-throated hummingbirds don’t spend that much time at home, if you consider their nesting territories the home base for these tiny fliers.

Seems we were just awaiting their arrival, but that was nearly four months ago. Yet, the annual hummingbird migration back south to their wintering habitats starts and accelerates in August, and we’re right there as of Monday.
