When Will hummingbirds Arrive In Oregon?
When will hummingbirds arrive in Oregon?
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 Oregon around the second week of March. They come to Oregon during breeding season, and build their nests in conifers and shrubs. As such, we advise getting your feeders ready and cameras charged by the first week of March. Hummingbirds love nectar-producing flowers, so if you want to see them in your yard, consider planting different varieties that bloom throughout the year, so you can provide your teeny little guests with some tasty food.
