The temperature hit precisely what was needed to trigger the trout spawning migration. Within less than two degrees difference the entire species was on the move. Likewise, within a few degree tilt of planet Earth, the entire Ruby throat species is also on the move. It's a variance small enough to keep that species consistent or similar to each other, but large enough to protect that same species from something catastrophic.
The reason I bring this up today is because we are at that time where millions of Ruby throats over the next few weeks will be triggered into a migration that will gradually spread over much of the continent. At this very moment a specific number of rubies have suddenly been sparked to move north and to fulfill their purpose. Everyday, more and more will receive the notice until the migration is spread out for hundreds of miles. If they were to travel all at the same time, severe weather could take out a large chunk of their population, but because of their uniqueness, each one has been created with their own individual setting, to react precisely at the time meant for them.
Although we won't see any new Rubies appearing on the Southeastern shore of the US for a couple weeks, many of them at this very moment have woken up in Mexico with an urge to move toward their summer home. Now it's only a matter of time before they arrive at their preferred location to meet up with the preparations we've laid out for them. As they complete their purpose to reproduce and provide entertainment for us, we'll be decorating our gardens to keep them content.
So as they wake up this morning with a purpose, likewise this is our time for preparation so we'll be ready for their return.
