Help The Hummingbirds


Through "Operation RubyThroat: The Hummingbird Project" we have spent the past 33 years studying behavior and ecology of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, all in the hope of making sure we understand these birds well enough to provide for their survival.

We are the only scientists investigating ruby-throats on the other end of their migratory path in Central America, where they spend have the year and where we have discovered they show strong site-fidelity, returning each winter to very specific locations. These kinds of data are very important in influencing landowners, government officials, and conservation organizations to protect appropriate habitat along and on both ends of the hummingbirds' migratory routes.
