Stopover Sites
The places hummingbirds stop during migration are called stopover sites. These sites provide critical habitat where hummingbirds can rest and refuel.

"I saw my first rufous of the season feeding on Grevillea flowers. This is a favorite spot for their stopover in Davis before migrating north to their breeding grounds." Davis, California 02/27/14
