Operation RubyThroat

“Operation RubyThroat: The Hummingbird Project” is a cross-disciplinary international initiative in which people collaborate to study behavior and distribution of the Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris).

Although K-12 teachers and students are the primary target audience, Operation RubyThroat is open to ANYONE interested in hummingbirds.

Most participants live in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Central America (Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama) – countries in which this bird regularly occurs.

Operation RubyThroat operates as an independent project and as a protocol within The GLOBE Program.
