Audubon Hummingbirds at Home

Download Audubon’s Hummingbirds at Home app, which makes it easy and fun to keep track of the hummingbirds you see while collecting data that helps Audubon scientists and researchers understand how to protect them.

To sustain their high energy lifestyles, hummingbirds must always have quick access to food. This means they must time their migrations with the flowering of the nectar-bearing plants they depend on. Recent studies show that the blooming of hummingbird flowers and arrival of the hummingbirds in their breeding areas are out of sync, which could spell trouble for the world’s smallest bird.

Now you can help Audubon unravel what is happening with hummingbirds and their nectar sources. The Hummingbirds at Home app helps you set up a patch in your yard, garden, porch, window box, park – or just about anywhere – where you can do plant surveys to keep track of hummingbirds and what they feed on. You can also log sightings whenever you spot a hummingbird outside your patch. Then use your smart phone or computer to submit your data to Audubon researchers.

While other birding apps help you identify birds, Hummingbirds at Home lets you contribute to their well-being. Join us. Together we can help hummingbirds.

We value your participation as we work on adding features.

Recommended for devices running Android 4.0 or higher; devices running Android 2.3 may experience performance issues.

Ugh! I have an account, and I can open the app with it - but I can't do anything else. As soon as I try to create a space, I get a bunch of gibberish and the app goes back to me needing to log in. I love this idea, and I WANT to love this app, but until it works - I simply can't.

Ruth Benedict Tried repeatedly to create an account. Nothing would allow me to get that far. Incredibly disappointing. Uninstall now.

Great idea but really poor interface and limited data gathering Painful nectar source selection process. You should allow people to text search for specific plants, and use Latin name as alternative to colloquial names, which are highly inaccurate and frequently used for more than one plant. In my opinion should also allow users to note if hummingbird visited patch for insects, or water. Hope it improves, because this is something that should succeed.
