Hummingbird Hotspot Map
|What is a Hummingbird Hotspot?|
|A small or large space that provides at least 2 nectar producing plants and/or one hummingbird feeder.|
Once your Hummingbird Hotspot is ready to go you can share you accomplishment on our map! When others see how many of us have provided some of the basic needs of hummingbirds in our yards it could inspire them to do the same.
Directions for adding your Hummingbird Hotspot on the map. NOTE: You must have a Google account to add your Hotspot. See note below if you’d like us to add your spot for you!
- For better viewing purposes, click the View Larger Map box in the upper right corner.
- If not signed in to your Google account, do it now. Click the blue EDIT text button in the left column.
- Find your location by either typing in the address here (where the red arrow indicates) or by zooming in using the plus/minus buttons in the bottom right of the map.
- Click the “Add Marker” button at the top (indicated by the red arrow) and then click your Hummingbird Hotspot’s location on the map. A red square with a graphic of a hummingbird will appear on the map where you clicked.
- There will also be a white box above the hummingbird graphic and you can enter a title for your hotspot as well as a description. Good things to include in the description are how many feeders you have and what plant species you have planted. You can also share what hummingbird species you have observed. You can also add a photo of your hotspot by clicking on the camera icon in the bottom right corner of the box.
- When you are finished adding you information just click “Save” and you are all done!
If you have trouble using this map please do feel free to email us your information and we can add it to the map for you. We will need the address, title, description and a photo. Please send this info to Jennie MacFarland .
