Spring Change and Hummingbird Migrations
Satellite Map Gives Clues
This satellite image shows the Eastern United States in April. (The state borders were put in.) No, the red dots aren't hummingbirds; they're fires! But something here does give us a clue about the ruby-throated hummingbird migration.
Look closely at the image. Compare it to today's migration map.
