When Will Hummingbirds Arrive In Ohio?

February 17, 2021

When will hummingbirds arrive in Ohio?

The annual hummingbird migration is one of the most charming things to experience, and luckily, here in Ohio, we don’t have to wait too long. According to hummingbird-guide.com, the hummingbirds are expected to arrive in Ohio around the fourth week of April. Of course, this is Mother Nature we’re talking about — so we advise having your feeders and cameras ready earlier in the month! Mother Nature doesn’t always adhere to a strict schedule.

What’s spring like in Ohio?

Spring in Ohio is absolutely glorious. After a long, grey winter, Ohioans are ready to embrace longer, sun-filled days and milder temperatures. But it’s not always predictable: we have been known to get snow in March and April, or have wet, chilly, rainy springs that rival the Pacific Northwest! Some days, in fact, we’ll experience all four seasons in one 24-hour timespan. We’ll wake up in the morning to frost on our car windows and bundle up as we head out into a winter morning. By the afternoon, we’ll have peeled off our layers and seriously start thinking about turning on the A/C! But all in all, spring in Ohio is full of blooming flowers and trees (the blooming cherry blossom trees are stunning), and the sound of kids running around outside.
