Also question is, are the hummingbirds gone?
Hummingbirds that are already on their way south can stop by and replenish their stores, too. In the western United States, the Anna's hummingbird stays in much of its range year around. But most hummingbirds do go south for the winter. Sometimes a late hummingbird straggles by long after all the others have gone.
Secondly, how far north are the hummingbirds? In the winter, Rufous Hummingbirds reside in southern Mexico. When the urge to migrate hits them, they speed up the West Coast of North America until they reach their breeding grounds in Canada and Alaska. That's a journey of nearly 4,000 miles -- a huge undertaking for such a tiny bird!
Also know, where are the hummingbirds this year?
Many hummingbirds spend the winter in Central America or Mexico, and migrate north to their breeding grounds in the southern U.S. and western states as early as February, and to areas further north later in the spring.
Why did my hummingbirds leave?
Turf Protection. Mature male hummingbirds frequently perform disappearing acts of their own, also often in times of nesting. If you happen to be in the vicinity of a male hummingbirds' individual turf, the lack of male hummingbirds in your yard could mean that he "forced" them all to leave.
