Policies for Reporting a First Hummingbird Sighting
Note the following policies regarding hummingbird sighting reports:
- We do not publish names or e-mail addresses or exact physical address on our map, just a city and state, and sighting details.
- Sightings posted to the map do not represent exact locations, addresses or coordinates; sightings are often placed on the map near center-city.
- In situations where multiple sightings are reported for a single location, only one sighting will be placed on the map.
- Sightings are not posted immediately, but normally within several days.
- Due to the volume of sightings reported, our limited staff, and our inability to fit all sightings on our map, we are not able to post every report.
- Priority is given to posting sightings along the leading edge of the migration.
