How far is the rufous hummingbird’s migration?



  1. 0 Votes

    Rufous hummingbirds spend the spring and summer breeding season in the northwest region of North America, with some traveling as far north as Alaska to breed.  For the winter, these birds migrate all the way to the Yucatan in southern Mexico.  This migration is especially impressive considering that rufous hummingbirds are one of the smaller North American hummingbird species.  Rufous hummingbirds have been recorded completing a round-trip migration of up to 12,000 miles total.  This presumably means the one-way migration route would be about 6,000 miles.
