Spring migration 2021 (1 Viewer)

I was looking up migration tracker maps for both common loons and ruby-throated hummingbirds on 2 different sources last night, and apparently both of these species were already spotted earlier this winter season at Virginia Beach, VA. Which means I better be keeping a lookout now, because who knows how soon they'll arrive up here in Ohio? I mean, I don't know if all those snowstorms in the south have something to do with this early of migration. But since someone else has already spotted a ruby-throat from all the way up in Washington state earlier this month... :rolleyes:

I can't wait for more spring migration, too! I will say, though, that both the hummingbird and loon could be wintering birds in Virginia, given that more Ruby-throats are choosing to winter in North America than before. Perhaps we'll have to wait until April for the new arrivals after all!
