Hummingbird Mirgration:Day or Night?

A friend recently asked me if hummingbirds migrate during the day or at night.  While I thought I knew the answer to this question, I told my friend that I would do some research on the matter and then get back to them with the answer to their question.  Here is what I discovered on the subject.

The migratory journey of the hummingbird takes place largely during the day.  The only exception to this is when the Ruby-throated Hummingbird has begun its migratory journey across the Gulf of Mexico.  As a result, they will be over water at night and therefore they must continue their journey until they reach the other side.

I am glad to be able to share my love and knowledge of hummingbirds with all of you.  Feel free to let me hear from you with any questions or comments that you may have about hummingbirds
