Discover When Hummingbirds Return to Oklahoma

Hummingbirds typically return to Oklahoma in the spring as part of their annual migration from their wintering grounds in Central America and Mexico.

The exact timing of their arrival can vary depending on factors such as weather conditions, temperature, and food availability along their migration route. However, in Oklahoma, hummingbirds generally start to appear in late March to early April.

To attract hummingbirds to your yard in Oklahoma, you can set up hummingbird feeders filled with a sugar-water solution or plant nectar-rich flowers such as trumpet vine, bee balm, salvia, and columbine.

Providing a water source, such as a shallow bird bath or fountain, can also help attract hummingbirds to your garden.

Keep in mind that migration patterns can vary from year to year, so it's a good idea to monitor local birding reports or join citizen science projects like eBird to track the arrival of hummingbirds in your area.

Additionally, keeping your hummingbird feeders clean and well-maintained throughout the spring and summer months will ensure that you continue to attract and support these beautiful birds as they pass through Oklahoma on their migratory journey.
