Coinciding with the ruby-throated hummingbirds’ fall migration, Rockport-Fulton’s 28th annual event features birding tours, speakers, vendors, and artists.

What: The ruby-throated hummingbirds’ fall migration     Where: Rockport-Fulton     When: September 15-18, 2016

Rockport-Fulton welcomes birds and their admirers for the HummerBird Celebration, held annually during the fall migration of the ruby-throated hummingbirds. About 25 local homes hang extra birdfeeders and cultivate their gardens to attract the hummers as the birds fuel up for their southbound flights across the Gulf of Mexico. Hundreds of hummingbirds swarm each lush yard, a spectacle featured on group and self-guided tours. Regional birding expeditions, expert speakers, a hummingbird-banding project, thematic vendors, and children’s programs round out the weekend.
