Hummingbirds rely on nectar for up to 90% of their diet and rely heavily on the timing of nectar blooms during their breeding season. Audubon's Hummingbirds at Home program was designed to mobilize citizen scientists across the US to bolster current research by documenting the feeding patterns of hummingbirds. We encourage birders across the nation to participate in this important program to help scientists gather the necessary data in order to implement an effective conservation plan. Below we have two introductory videos about the Hummingbirds at Home project, followed by a full length documentary about the nature of Hummingbirds. Won't you join in the conservation effort to help protect these magnificent creatures?
