Keep Your Eyes Peeled, Thousands Of Hummingbirds Are Headed Right For Washington During Their Migration This Spring

Ready for some positive news, fellow Washingtonians? We thought so. Thousands of hummingbirds are making their way up north for their spring migration, and it won’t be long before we’re seeing them here if you’re not already spotting them. Here’s what to expect and how (and where!) to find these adorable birds.

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/

You can easily attract these sweet little hummingbirds with a feeder, although they are also particular to red, purple, pink, and orange flowers. Make them a meal of cane sugar and water (no food coloring) and they’ll be your new best friends.
