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.

Love this app.! Please consider adding a native plant. Great app. Great to be a part of data collecting. Audubon...please consider adding Indian Plum, Oemleria cerasiformis, to the nectar plant list. The Anna's, & the early arrival Rufous, are all over it! :)!

A mess This app is as bad as week old nectar. It sucks the fun out of watching the birds.

Great and beautiful app! I'm an avid birder living in Colorado and have three types of hummers come to my feeders throughout the spring and summer season: Broad-Tailed, Black-Chinned and Rufous. I use only a feeder filled homemade sugar water. There aren't many flower bearing bushes or shrubs in my area until my morning glories bloom. I think this app is cool and makes me feel like I'm contributing to data collection for my specific area.

source unlisted; app unusable The list does not include fuchsia, even though it is listed on the site as a common source of nectar. If all sources cannot be shown, there should at least be the option of typing in a source. Also, to highlight something by covering it with dark gray shading is counterintuitive. The app is well-intentioned, but badly constructed.
