When Will Hummingbirds Arrive In Kentucky?

February 17, 2021

When will hummingbirds arrive in Kentucky?

The hummingbird migration truly is one of the most delightful things you’ll ever see; luckily, we don’t have to wait too long for this event. This year, according to hummingbird-guide.com, the hummingbirds are expected to arrive in Kentucky around the second week of March. As such, we advise getting your feeders ready and cameras charged by the last week of February or first week of March. Depending on where you are in Kentucky matters, too; the Southwest side of the state could begin to see hummingbirds earlier.

Does Kentucky have any butterfly houses?

We sure do! Wilson Nurseries in Frankfurt actually boasts the largest butterfly house in Kentucky; you’ll find fluttering butterflies there June through October. Idlewild Butterfly Farm in Louisville is another places to admire butterflies in The Bluegrass State, and it’s a total hidden gem. The farm is located in a historic building on an urban street corner in Louisville. Run by certified entomologists, the charm and historic nature of this building actually make it a perfect spot for an enchanting butterfly farm. Visiting Idlewild Butterfly Farm like entering a secret garden.
