Keep Your Eyes Peeled, Thousands Of Hummingbirds Are Headed Right For North Carolina During Their Migration This Spring
Good news, North Carolina! The annual hummingbird migration is officially underway and we’ve already begun spotting the graceful Ruby-throated hummingbird in back yards around parts of the Tar Heel State! Each fall, thousands of these exquisite winged creatures migrate south from as far north as Canada to as far south as Central America, Mexico, and parts of Florida until it’s time to head north again in the spring to breed.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Whether you believe the Native American lore about hummingbirds bringing love and good luck, or are just simply fascinated by this tiny, winged bird, prepare for some springtime delight as they meander in and out of the back yard for the next few weeks!
