It's that time of the year when these two amazing creatures make their travels south. The Monarch Butterfly leaves mid to late September, all the way to Mexico. The Ruby-throated hummingbirds begin their migration as early as July, but most wait until August & September to travel down to Florida, Mexico, or Central America. The males leave first, followed by the females, then juveniles. Till next Spring!
