ChapMa, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are found throughout the year in FL however their numbers are very much related to the time of the year (season) and area of the state (north or south)! South FL has very few hummers in the summer season. Central FL (Lakeland to Ocala) has hummers year round but probably more in the winters than the summer. Northern FL (Jacksonville to Tallahassee) also has hummers year round and probably more in the summer. The Panhandle of FL is a special case with very few in the summer but many more in the winter season.
In answer to your question relating to the Citrus Co. area I have had numerous reports of wintering hummers there and also summer birds as well (Central FL), including reports of nesting hummers.
Of particular note is that 9 other hummingbird species have been documented in FL, all of the 9 species during the winter months. Everyone should keep an eye out for unusual looking hummers that are NOT Ruby-throated and should be reported.
We are new to Florida, we live in Citrus county (Hernando). We are wondering what time of year the HB are in our side of the state? Thanks!
. I just noticed Thursday a hummingbird outback where it’s furthest from the street. It was what looked like drinking the dew off the oaks. I hung a hummingbird feeder fairly close in that area to see what happens. 7/6/18
