Hummingbirds winter in warmer territories

Where are my ruby-throated hummingbirds in December? ~ East Lansing, MI
Right now our Michigan Ruby-throated hummingbirds are probably somewhere down south, sitting near the water, sipping something sweet and sunning themselves.

Their spring breeding habitat is throughout most of eastern North America and the Canadian forest edges, orchards, and gardens. Then they spend most of the winter in Florida, southern Mexico, Central America, and as far south as extreme western Panama, and the West Indies.
