West Texas Hummingbird Cam Going Offline For The Year

The West Texas Hummingbird Cam will go offline for the season on Dec. 7, 2016. Hummingbird migration has come to an end, and the handful of hummers left at the site will move on to greener pastures as winter weather approaches the mountains outside Fort Davis, TX. It's been an eventful season full of rare sightings, bustling feeders, and an increasing number of Acorn Woodpeckers. Thanks to our partners at West Texas Avian Research and Perky-Pet for making this season so successful and exciting! See you next year!

At that rate, it'll be awhile until they empty the feeders on the Cornell Lab FeederWatch Cam!
