If you’re charmed by spring peepers, you’ll be thrilled to know that there’s another delightful and diminutive little creature that appears during this season in Texas: the hummingbird! This is the springtime migratory path of the Ruby-throated hummingbird, which passes through Texas later this month into early April. Other species follow similar routes, with minor differences based on their final destinations. How can you be sure these little guys stop by your home? To attract hummingbirds and replenish their nutrient stores, put a feeder outside your home! Not only are they adorable to look at, but keeping them well-fed also supports a completed migration journey! Read all about the spring hummingbird migration in Texas in this article.
