Ruby-throated Hummingbird Migration

Monarch Migration Map, 2010

The same dates are represented by dot colors on both the hummingbird and monarch maps (ex. orange dots represent April 12 - 29 on both maps).

  • In what ways are their migrations similar?
  • In what ways are their migrations different?

After you have compared these 2 species using your Venn Diagram (in today's Update), give some reasons you think might explain why the hummingbird's migration has pushed further north.
