August-October (FALL) – 124 species are seen in the area during the Fall months in Southeast Arizona, including the following species:
The Fall Migration starts EARLY (Late July through early November). We should list a separate Season called HUMMINGBIRDS for late July through early October as that is when the southbound migration brings all those adults with their chicks to the area to enjoy the benefits of our Monsoon Rains: Lush Green habitat that blooms, along with ample moisture for the birds and their dietary needs. If you want to see the MOST HUMMINGBIRDS come in the peak of the season in mid-August to September.
- Hummingbirds In the Area: Black Chin*, Anna’s*, Broad-billed*, Broad-tailed*, Costa's, Blue Throated, White-eared, Berylline, Violet-crowned*, Rufous*, Magnificent*, Calliope*, Lucifer, Plain Capped Starthroat (* are probably or possible right here in our yard at our many feeders - others are more likely in the nearby Canyons: Ramsey, Miller, Ash. But we occasionally do get visiting Magnificents and Beryline, and even a stray Plain Capped Starthroat on record.)
