Rufous Huummingbird Facts

  • The Rufous Hummingbird has the longest migration route compared to all other species of hummingbirds found in the United States. 
  • The male Rufous may mate with several females.
  • The female of this species is larger then the male, but this is actually quite common.  The female needs to be bigger because she must be able to produce eggs, to afford to share her body heat with the eggs while incubating, and to be able to share their food when feeding nestlings. 
  •  The Rufous Hummingbird nest further north then any other species of hummingbird.

Where Rufous Hummingbirds Migrate

Rufous Hummingbirds have many areas that they visit along their migratory journey.  In spring Rufous Hummingbirds migrate up the Pacific coast, passing through California from February to May.  They will reach British Columbia in early April and Alaska by mid-April.  Birds arrive in Idaho and Montana around the end of April.


Hummingbirds Do Have Feet

It may surprise you to know that some people, even some adults, believe that hummingbird do not have feet.  This is not true!  Hummingbirds do have feet, but they are very poorly developed and therefore the hummingbird can barely walk at all, just a few inches. The feet of the hummingbird are used for preening, perching and scratching rather then walking.  The hummingbird is most comfortable when in flight.

Protection for the Hummingbird

Have you ever wondered what legislation is in existence to protect the hummingbird? I did and I discovered some very interesting information that I will now share with you. I hope you will find it as interesting as I myself did.
The Endangered Species Act requires the United States federal government to identify species threatened with extinction, identify habitat they need to survive, and help protect both.  In doing so, the Act works to ensure the basic health of our natural ecosystems and protect the legacy of conservation we leave to our children and grandchildren.
It may interest you to know that there is only one hummingbird listed under the Endangered Species Act. Do you know which species? I’d be amazed if you know the answer because it is a species of hummingbird that I myself had never before heard of until doing research for this post. The only hummingbird listed under the Endangered Species Act is the hook-billed hermit hummingbird.
The Migratory Bird Treaty Act implements various treaties and conventions between the U.S. and Canada, Japan, Mexico and the former Soviet Union for the protection of migratory birds. Under the Act, taking, killing or possessing migratory birds is unlawful.
I hope you have found the information in this post to be interesting. It is not my intention to imply that the information found here is a complete listing of all existing legislation intended to protect the hummingbird. It is just what I discovered in the course of doing research for this post. The information for this post was provided by the Defenders of Wildlife. If you are interested in additional information you may contact them at the following:
