Hummingbird Alerts

A young female Rufous Hummingbird was banded and positively identified yesterday (Oct. 20) in Logan County, KY.

They are on the move!  Watch for that lone hummer still at your feeder!

A young female Rufous in the winter can look very similar to a young female Ruby-throat and is virtually identical to a young female Allen's in winter plumage. Only a bander can differentiate the two in-hand!

Reminder: Leave a feeder out through December for these late, western vagrants ... there may be many more than we ever anticipated. We just didn't know we were supposed to be looking and put our feeders away in October!

 Banded 75 ruby-throated hummingbirds
   We banded 75 ruby-throated hummingbirds this past weekend       near Zaleski State Park in southern Ohio. What a weekend!    Recaptured four that I banded two years ago ... great stuff!!!
   Saw-whet Owl banding starts up in about a month. Stay tuned for  more details!
