Keep Your Eyes Peeled, Thousands Of Hummingbirds Are Headed Right For Minnesota During Their Migration This Spring
For many Minnesotans, there’s no greater sign of spring than the sight and sound of birds in the air! Honking Canada geese arrive early on, as do ducks and cranes. They’re often here when the water is still frigid and the ground still covered in snow. But some birds arrive later, making them the true harbingers of warm weather in Minnesota. One example is the ruby-throated hummingbird. This tiny but beautiful bird migrates by the thousand every spring and fall. This spring, like every other, they’re headed right for Minnesota. Read on to learn about the birds’ migration and when you can expect to spot these popular backyard birds humming around your home.
