Welcome to RPG
The hummingbird migration is nearly over (but keep those feeders up for stragglers). Hummingbirds (or hummers) are so named because of the unique humming sound they make with their wings during flight. RPG enjoyed a great hummingbird season. Of the 15 varieties of hummers spotted in the US, only five species regularly visit Ohio - Ruby-throated, Rufous, Calliope, Allen’s, and Anna’s.
Not only are hummingbirds amazing and beautiful creatures, they are also essential pollinators. Without these tiny birds, many fruit plants and countless flower varieties would die. Hummers will fly more than 500 miles nonstop across the Gulf of Mexico to their southern homes. As the hummingbird migration comes to an end, we wish our feathered residents a safe voyage.
