Why Migrate Alone?

Have you ever wondered why hummingbirds migrate alone?  If so, this post will provide you will some explainations. 

  • Hummingbirds must stop quite frequently to feed at flowers, so it is easier on the birds to travel alone rather then having to wait on one another while this occurs.
  • There is no real advantage to hummingbirds traveling as a flock, because the air current produced by their flight breaks up easily so it would be impossible for other hummingbirds to follow in their wake.
