In respect to this, do hummingbirds stay in the same area?
Hummingbirds do have a fantastic memory and will return to the same feeder every year. If these feeders are not out, the hummingbirds may leave to look somewhere else and never return. It's true that our little friends come back to us loyally but they cannot live more than hours without nectar.
Furthermore, what state do hummingbirds live in? Most species live in the tropics, and while 17 species regularly nest in the United States, many of these are found close to the Mexican border. Most areas in the U.S. have one or two breeding species, and only the ruby-throated hummingbird nests east of the Mississippi.
Just so, where are hummingbirds most common?
The Most Common Hummingbird Species Hummingbirds are found only in the Western Hemisphere, with almost half the species living in the "equatorial belt" between 10 degrees north and south of the equator. Fewer than two dozen species venture into the U.S. and Canada, and only a few species remain year-round.
Where do hummingbirds migrate to in the summer?
During spring and summer they travel through Arizona and New Mexico and northern Mexico, to winter in southwestern Mexico as well as in Guatemala and Belize. Broad-Tailed hummingbirds migrate north in the spring leaving behind the non-migrant populations in central Mexico.
