When will hummingbirds arrive in Colorado?
When is the hummingbird migration in Colorado?
Hummingbirds spend their time from around September to around April in warmer climates nearer to the equator. In April, though, they begin a mass migration northward – arriving in colorful Colorado in late April, and staying until about August. They make a fall migration southward again at the end of summer, usually in September. Their ultimate goal during spring migration tends to be to arrive in Canada, though many simply stay in the central United States during their journeys.
