Hummingbird fall migration already in Texas summer

This video from Texas in the USA says about itself:

Early Morning Frenzy, Plus a Rufous Hummingbird! – July 12, 2017

Watch this zen moment as the sun starts to peek over the mountains outside of Fort Davis, TX. One of the first flame-tinged Rufous Hummingbirds pops on cam during the frenzy. Can you spot him?

The West Texas Hummingbird Feeder Cam is nestled in the mountains outside Fort Davis, Texas, at an elevation of over 6200 feet. This site hosts a total of 24 Perky Pet Grand Master hummingbird feeders, and during peak migration can attract hundreds of hummingbirds from a dozen species that are migrating through the arid mountains.

From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA today:

Species Diversity Heating Up In West Texas

The hummingbird numbers are increasing on the West Texas hummingbird cam, and as fall migration draws closer, feeding frenzies will soon become an all-day activity at the Perky-Pet® Grand Master hummingbird feeder. Not only has the sheer abundance of hummingbirds increased, but various new species have also hovered into view for the first time this year. In recent weeks, Lucifer Hummingbirds, Rufous Hummingbirds, and Calliope Hummingbirds have all visited for a quick sip of nectar. What will be next? There’s only one way to find out—watch the cam.

Learn more about the jewels of West Texas by trying your hand at the Perky-Pet West Texas Hummingbird Trivia Quiz. If you get stuck on a question, check out the Cornell Lab’s All About Birds species guide for clues. Three lucky participants will be chosen from those who answer correctly to walk away with a brand new hummingbird feeder from our sponsors at Perky-Pet!
