With the 2016 season of the West Texas Hummingbird Cam winding down, we wanted to share some of our favorite moments from this year on cam.

From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA today:

West Texas Welcomes Back Hummingbirds

The West Texas hummingbird cam sponsored by Perky-Pet is back just as spring migration is hitting full stride! Over the cam season, viewers will have the chance to witness over a dozen different hummingbird species as they migrate through the arid Davis Mountains in West Texas (watch a highlight featuring all the species that visited the cam in 2017). You’re sure to be dazzled by these bejeweled fliers as they hover from port to port, sipping nectar from one of the 24 Perky-Pet Grand Master hummingbird feeders hosted at the cam site by our parters at West Texas Avian Research.

What To Watch For: Rivoli’s, Black-chinned, and Broad-tailed Hummingbirds are the usual suspects on cam this time of year. However, there have been reports of less-common Lucifer and Broad-billed Hummingbirds frequenting the feeder. The latter has also been seen gathering nesting material (See photo of female collecting unbleached cotton fiber that’s offered on site). As the weeks pass, other species, like the pugnacious Rufous or pint-sized Calliope Hummingbird, will steal your breath away, meaning there’s no better time to get out that species guide and start learning these hummingbirds!
