Hummingbirds at Home

It's here! Please sign up to participate.

As flowers bloom earlier because of warming temperatures, the impact on hummingbirds which rely on nectar could be severe. Hummingbirds at Home is a new community science initiative from Audubon that will help scientists understand how climate change, flowering patterns and feeding by people are impacting hummingbirds.

On the Hummingbirds at Home website you can report on hummingbirds and their feeding behavior at any time of year.  Using the website or a free mobile app makes it easy to report sightings and learn more about these remarkable birds. 

You can participate at any level – from reporting a single sighting to documenting hummingbird activity in your community throughout the life of the project.  Help us document the hummingbirds journey and direct change in the future to ensure these incredible birds do not disappear.

Read about the science behind Hummingbirds at Home.  Since 2013, Audubon’s Hummingbirds at Home program has helped scientists understand how climate change, flowering patterns, and human interactions impact hummingbirds. Read to see what thousands of survey results showed us about these dazzling birds and the plants that make them feel right at home.
