Hummingbirds, and many other bird species migrate each year to friendly climates, moving southward for the winter and returning north for the summer months.
Migration routes for hummingbirds are often more than 2,000 miles!
Scientists learn about bird migration by BANDING as shown in the video below.

Do some research on Hummingbird Migration by checking out this webpage:
LINK - HUMMINGBIRD MIGRATION
(1) Read to find out the migration route for the Ruby Throated Hummingbird. (Be careful! The route that it takes traveling north is different than the route that it takes traveling south.)
(2) Sketch a simple map showing the migration routes for the Ruby Throated Hummingbird and label the northbound route and the southbound route.
(3) Put a star on the map where you believe you might be able to best observe (or catch) hummingbirds so that you can BAND them while they are migrating.
(4) Write down the reason you selected that location.
(5) Turn in your paper to Mrs D to EARN A REWARD!!!
