The West Texas Feeder Cam is nestled in the mountains outside Fort Davis, Texas, at an elevation of over 5500 feet. This site hosts a total of 30 hummingbird feeders, and during peak migration can attract hundreds of hummingbirds from a dozen species that are migrating through the arid mountains. During winter, our cam hosts install a more traditional bird feeder setup that attracts species like Pine Siskins, Ladder-backed Woodpeckers, and more.
For over 10 years, researchers from West Texas Avian Research have been banding hummingbirds at this site and others throughout the Trans-Pecos region of Texas to study the status and distribution of hummingbirds throughout the poorly known region. The active banding of hummingbirds continues (off camera) at this site in the Davis Mountains, and from time to time you may hear researchers working in the background. Some common species in you may hear vocalizing include Woodhouse’s Scrub-Jays, Acorn Woodpeckers, and Bewick’s Wrens (among others).
Thanks to West Texas Avian Research for their enthusiasm and support for hosting the camera at this remote research site.
