Hummingbirds of Southeast Texas

My mom and I loved to watch the hummingbirds that visited our yard while sitting on the back porch. At the time, neither of us had any knowledge whatsoever about these amazing birds, but we just enjoyed watching their antics and behavior. Well, guess what? I have since discovered many things about the hummingbirds found in southeast Texas. What is the he most common species of hummingbird found in southeast Texas? When do the hummingbirds found here migrate through the area? What species of hummingbirds you will see during the winter season? So, if this is the type of information that you would like to know yourself, please keep reading this post.
 
In southeast Texas, the most common hummingbird to be found here is the Ruby-throated Hummingbird. The spring migration season last from March through May and you will see these birds pass through the area on their northbound journey. You will then begin to see the southbound migrants begin to appear in mid-July and there will be an increase in the numbers in September, with the occasional straggler appearing through November.
 
In the winter months, we have several species of hummingbird that can be found in Texas. The most common species are the Rufous Hummingbird and the Black-chinned Hummingbird, but although a rarer occurrence you could also see the Allen’s, Anna’s, Calliope, Costa’s, Broad-tailed and Buff-bellied Hummingbirds too.

  • Very informative post and I kind of completely agree with you (except on 2 points) on what you said. Keep the good work going. Your writing style is very good and I was able to understand the post clearly even though English is my second language. PS: I have already subscribed to your blog’s RSS feed.

    What two points don’t you agree with and why? I would like to understand if you feel that the information is incorrect and know if you can support what you believe.

  • I know this is really boring and you are skipping to the next comment, but I just wanted to throw you a big thanks – you cleared up some things for me!
