Thanks for the news that the Ruby-throateds are on their way. It's been another 
brutal winter, and those words help keep me focused on the fun to come. Yay,

Howdy Humnetters,

I'm still busy chasing winterers, but that puts me at the right place 
and the right time to see new incoming migrant Ruby-throateds.  Saw my 
first of the season at one of the best hummer spots in the New Orleans 
area on 22 February.  Saw another today at a place in Metairie.

Occasionally, I see a bright, shiny fresh adult male before about 10 
March [average arrival date], but I don't recall ever having seen 2 
before that time.  Of course, this was not at my own home.  Soon, I am sure.

Nan

On Sunday, 22 February, I observed an adult male Ruby-throated in 
bright, shiny-fresh plumage that appeared to me to fit the bill of a 
northbound migrant at Lizette Wroten's 'Harahan Hummingbird Haven'. 
Lizette was not present when I made my observation.  She said that she 
had an adult male earlier in the season, but that she had not seen him 
in several weeks.  In my experience, wintering adult male 
Ruby-throateds, which are few and far between, do not usually present 
with the same brilliance as do incoming migrants. Additionally, immature 
males that winter in southern Louisiana do not usually acquire their 
adult plumage until later in March or even April.

Early date at my place is 20 February 2013.  Prior to that, it was 24 
February sometime in the 1980s.

Baton Rouge Area Humnetters

Just in the last couple of weeks my garden has gone from one adult male 
Blackchinned that's been mostly by himself here since October, to a nice little 
handful of hums. They include: 2 adult male Blackchins (one banded/marked, one 
not), 1 adult male Rufous (banded), 1 immature male Rufous, and at least 1 
female Rufous. 



Soon they'll be joined by adult male Rubythroats.

Hum-fun!

Whomever is keeping up with such things now, please contact me for appx arrival 
dates for the newer birds.

year.

Katherine \\\"Kacy\\\" King has been in the field of Parks and Protected
Areas Management for 25 years. She has spent the last ten years with The
Nature Conservancy, serving as the manager for their Cypress Island
Preserve Program and specializing in land protection. Prior to her work
with the Conservancy, she wore many hats in the natural resource
conservation field, including work as a Park Ranger in Colorado and a stint
as a regulatory biologist for a consulting firm in California. Because of
her diverse experience in both the public and private sectors, Ms. King is
responsible for a wide range of conservation management projects in her
current role including building long-term relationships with private
landowners and local, state, and federal agencies, managing the protection
of a nationally significant waterbird rookery, and developing and managing
a volunteer team that keeps the Visitor Center at the preserve open to
visitors from all over the world. In addition to her duties in Acadiana,
Ms. King works on land protection within Louisiana. Ms. King has a Masters
of Science in Natural Resources Management from Colorado State University.

January 30 – Enjoying Wintering Hummingbirds

At 6:30pm on Friday, Jan 30 2015, Dennis Demcheck, long-time appreciator of
winter hummingbirds will present a talk which will showcase the
under-appreciated fact that as many as 9 different kinds of hummingbirds
throughout North America regularly spend the winter months in Louisiana. In
the summer we have only one kind of hummingbird, the Ruby-throated, but in
winter the Rubies will be replaced by such beautiful species as the Rufous,
Buff-bellied, Calliope, and others as they take advantage of the relatively
mild Louisiana winter climate. A huge benefit for experienced and casual
birders alike is that these birds are comfortably and easily seen in our
yards. No long wilderness experiences or expensive gear are needed to enjoy
the secret lives of these little gems from our kitchen windows. The talk
will discuss the various types of flowers, feeders, and evergreen cover the
birds prefer. We will present a quick survey of the kinds of hummingbirds
to be expected in southern Louisiana with identification tips. The talk
will recommend hummer-friendly plants readily available from local
nurseries. Come learn about these rare and special birds in this
introduction tailored to the non-expert birder. This presentation will
provide context for the BRAS Winter Hummingbird tour the following day.

January 31 – Winter Hummingbird Tour

Each winter as many as 9 different North American species of Hummingbird
spend the winter in certain yards and gardens around Baton Rouge. If you
would like an opportunity to view some of these rare and special birds,
please join us for the Annual Winter Hummingbird Tour. We will meet at
BrewHaHa coffee shop (711 Jefferson Hwy, Baton Rouge) at 7:30 am on
Saturday, January 31. There we will probably split into groups (depending
on the number of attendees) and carpool in order to visit the homes of
several Hummingbird Hosts. Species that we hope to see include Rufous,
Black-Chinned, Broad-tailed, Buff-Bellied, Calliope, and more.

This has been a very quiet winter hum-wise, for my Baton Rouge yard. Only 2 
hums---an adult male Blackchinned that's been present constantly for months, 
and a recent arrival R/A Selasphorus. Last week's hard frost zapped almost all 
my thousands of blooms, so the 15 feeders are getting a lot more attention from 
my 2 hums and a host of Orange-crowned Warblers. 


Also appearing at the seed feeder (?) a few days ago was an immature male (?) 
Northern Oriole.

From:    "Bill Hilton Jr." 
Subject: Operation RubyThroat Neotropical Anniversary

Here’s a little blurb I just posted to the Hilton Pond Center Facebook page:

"Today (2 Jan 2015) is a very nostalgic day for me. On this date exactly ten 
years ago my first team of Operation RubyThroat citizen scientists--I called 
them the "Pioneers" (left photo below, including wife Sue Ballard Hilton and 
son Billy Hilton III)--had just finished eight days in the field in Guanacaste 
Province, Costa Rica, and were being replaced by the "Second Wave." These two 
teams and I--along with irreplaceable tico naturalist Ernesto M. 
Carman--observed and captured Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in what was the first 
known attempt to study that species systematically on its wintering grounds in 
the Neotropics.

Here’s a little blurb I just posted to the Hilton Pond Center Facebook page:

"Today (2 Jan 2015) is a very nostalgic day for me. On this date exactly ten 
years ago my first team of Operation RubyThroat citizen scientists--I called 
them the "Pioneers" (left photo below, including wife Sue Ballard Hilton and 
son Billy Hilton III)--had just finished eight days in the field in Guanacaste 
Province, Costa Rica, and were being replaced by the "Second Wave." These two 
teams and I--along with irreplaceable tico naturalist Ernesto M. 
Carman--observed and captured Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in what was the first 
known attempt to study that species systematically on its wintering grounds in 
the Neotropics.

Kimberly,

Yes, they're on the list.  Scroll WAY down.

A reminder to all on how the report is organized since I get this question from 
time to time. 


1) New reports
2) A quick summary of all reports
3) All reports sorted alphabetically first by species, then parish, and then 
host. 


If you're email service allows for ctrl-F (find command) then that can help 
sort through this report as it gets long. If your email does not, then copy all 
(ctrl-A) and paste it into MS Word or other word processor, then search with 
ctrl-F. 


Thanks for reporting and happy hummingbirding!
Erik

I still have my three from earlier in the year. Should they be on the list? Two 
AD M RUHU and the juvenile RUHU with partial gorget.

Anyone out there not reporting your hummingbirds or need help with IDs? Please 
continue to report your western winter hummer observations to me (ejohnson AT 
Audubon.org), LAbird, or HUMNET for recording in our report and database, 
providing the following information:

or if a mistake needs to be corrected, please report those updates and I'll 
make the changes. If you sent me a report and it didn't make it into this 
summary, I apologize and please let me know.

I still have my three from earlier in the year. Should they be on the list? Two

Anyone out there not reporting your hummingbirds or need help with IDs? Please 
continue to report your western winter hummer observations to me (ejohnson AT 
Audubon.org), LAbird, or HUMNET for recording in our report and database, 
providing the following information:

or if a mistake needs to be corrected, please report those updates and I'll 
make the changes. If you sent me a report and it didn't make it into this 
summary, I apologize and please let me know.

Louisiana birders,

There are certainly hummingbirds out there, so keep your feeders going, 
especially as the natural foods continue to dwindle through the winter. Sort of 
remarkable, however, I've only had 1 Calliope Hummingbird reported thus far. 
Anyone out there not reporting your hummingbirds or need help with IDs? Please 
continue to report your western winter hummer observations to me (ejohnson AT 
Audubon.org), LAbird, or HUMNET for recording in our report and database, 
providing the following information: 


- Your name
- Your address (town only is acceptable)
- First observed (FO) date (or, if discovered while banding or marking other 
birds, the date it was observed) 

- Species
- Age (Adult, immature, unknown)
- Sex (Male, female, unknown)
- Whether banded, when and by whom.

If additional information is learned through further observation or banding or 
if a mistake needs to be corrected, please report those updates and I'll make 
the changes. If you sent me a report and it didn't make it into this summary, I 
apologize and please let me know. 


Happy hummingbirding,
Erik Johnson

Louisiana birders,

Among many other things in my life, I'm thankful to everyone who provides safe 
backyard habitat for birds. I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving and holiday 
season. 


Please be advised that any Ruby-throated Hummingbird present as of 15 November 
becomes a "wintering" hummingbird, so be sure to report those among the western 
hummingbirds. If you don't have winter hummingbirds yet (like me), don't be 
discouraged. There's still a lot of winter to go, so keep those feeders going. 
As you get birds, please continue to report your western winter hummer 
observations to me (ejohnson AT Audubon.org), LAbird, or HUMNET for recording 
in our report and database, providing the following information: 


- Your name
- Your address (town only is acceptable)
- First observed (FO) date (or, if discovered while banding or marking other 
birds, the date it was observed) 

- Species
- Age (Adult, immature, unknown)
- Sex (Male, female, unknown)
- Whether banded, when and by whom.

If additional information is learned through further observation or banding or 
if a mistake needs to be corrected, please report those updates and I'll make 
the changes. If you sent me a report and it didn't make it into this summary, I 
apologize and please let me know. 


Happy hummingbirding,
Erik Johnson

Forwarding this for Susan Campbell.


Morning All,

I found out last night that the banded Rufous I caught Saturday in New
Bern at the Figeuroa residence was originally banded in Ft. Atkinson, WI
on October 19th!  Given that she arrived here about Nov. 15th, having
left Cindy Bridge's on the 23rd, she must have covered over 1000 miles
in about three weeks.  Certainly THE highlight of the 2014-15 winter
season-- doubt Dwayne or I can top that in the next few months!  Images
of this beauty will be posted on the Carolina Bird Club web site very
shortly, for anyone interested.

For those who are unaware, the New Bern area is quite the winter
hummingbird magnet.  In recent winters there been a Rufous or two there
as well as a few Ruby-throateds. However, it was where the state's first
Calliope, Broad-billed (and third; originally banded by Bill Hilton in
SC), and Buff-bellied Hummingbirds were documented.  Furthermore, NC's
second Anna's and third Allen's Hummingbird showed up at feeders there
as well.

In the last couple weeks I have also recaptured 2 of "my" Rufous: back
at feeders on Greensboro and Winston-Salem. Also managed to band a new
immature female Rufous in Winston-Salem and an adult female
Ruby-throated in New Bern.  I have hummers in the Raleigh area to head
for next week, including a old (at least 5 yr. old)banded Rufous south
of Falls Lake.  So stay tuned!

Until then, have a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving!

Susan Campbell
Whispering Pines, NC

Linda came to band the Rufous in my yard I reported it as a young male well
oops when she saw it she said it a mature female.

Even tho we had no success in trapping the bird at least Linda gave it the
proper ID .

Linda will try another day and have thoughts maybe last year returning
Rufous time will tell on that.

Sorry about that from the novice hummingbird person may all sound silly to
you but thrilled to have the wintering hummer in my yard.

Ever wonder where “our" Ruby-throated Hummingbirds go specifically when the 
weather turns cold? Nobody knows for sure, so here’s a chance to possibly 
solve that mystery once and for all. 


Time is running out to join our upcoming Operation RubyThroat hummingbird 
expedition to Guanacaste Province on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, where my 
next group of citizen scientists will be enjoying warm, sunny weather while 
observing and photographing all sorts of exotic Neotropical plants and animals. 
Dates are 24 Jan-1 Feb 2015. Sign up today; you'll be very glad you did. 


See the detailed itinerary at 
http://www.hiltonpond.org/CostaRica(west)AnnounceMain15.html 


My report on our just-completed record-breaking trip to the Orosi Valley on 
Costa Rica's Caribbean slope will be posted soon. 


Happy (Neotropical) Birding!

Humnet and all,

Based on feedback from Linda Beall, we will call this a female Blackchin.
First observed 11/15.  

 

"Definitely an Archilochus, but I think it could be a Black-chinned....it's
not as dingy underneath as typical for BCHU, but I think I see bluntness in
the tip of the outermost wing feathers.  The back appears to be pine-green,
and the forehead is really sloping.   The 

bill is long and is slightly de-curved. Again, traits that lean more toward
BCHU than RTHU.

Louisiana birders,

Thanks to everyone for your incoming reports! Things have picked up a little in 
the last couple weeks. Please continue to report your western winter hummer 
observations to me (ejohnson AT Audubon.org), LAbird, or HUMNET for recording 
in our report and database, providing the following information: 


- Your name
- Your address (town only is acceptable)
- First observed (FO) date (or, if discovered while banding or marking other 
birds, the date it was observed) 

- Species
- Age (Adult, immature, unknown)
- Sex (Male, female, unknown)
- Whether banded, when and by whom.

If additional information is learned through further observation or banding or 
if a mistake needs to be corrected, please report those updates and I'll make 
the changes. If you sent me a report and it didn't make it into this summary, I 
apologize and please let me know. 


Happy hummingbirding,
Erik Johnson

For one reason or another, a few hummers always seem to be a bit behind the 
migration curve. This one may have left, say, the middle of Québec on time, 
then got delayed by injury or illness. Or it might have started late because it 
couldn't put on enough fat to depart on schedule. Or maybe its internal clock 
is just a bit slower than most. The latest I've banded a Ruby-throated 
Hummingbird in St. Louis was mid December, and it appeared to be a healthy 
migrant. 


Expect your bird to leave on the next reasonably nice day with a north wind.

Linda, I do subscribe to Humnet and report FO's to our list.

My selasphorus hummer has long been reported to that list.

Have you forgotten that I began and produced that Louisiana Western Winter 
Hummingbird Weekly Report for over ten years? 


Shame on you.

Don't be offended, I am teasing you, old friend😀

Good to hear from you.

While working in the yard at my old house yesterday, I saw a hummingbird that 
looked like a Selasphorus but didn't have optics. Today I heard what sounded 
like a Rufous/Allen's and have a photo of what I think is an immature male. 
Will post photo later for confirmation once I upload.

#1 Buff-bellied Hummingbird  Female [age unknown]  FO 11/01/2014

While out inspecting significant damage to plants from the winds, I thought I 
heard a Buff-bellied Hummingbird, so I went inside so as to view from a better 
vantage point and to allow the bird to move about freely.  Then, I was able to 
confirm visually.

Hopefully, this is the same bird that was a youngster when banded in January 
2008 and which has returned each year in October ever since.  If this is the 
same individual, this will be her 8th season to winter here.

From: "Johnson, Erik" <ejohnson AT AUDUBON.ORG>
Date: Thu, 23 Oct 2014 18:16:36 +0000
Louisiana birders,

I've received very few newer reports over the last several weeks. I hope it's 
just a lack of reporting rather than a lack of hummingbirds. Please continue to 
report your western winter hummer observations to me (ejohnson AT Audubon.org), 
LAbird, or HUMNET for recording in our weekly report and database, providing 
the following information: 


- Your name
- Your address (town only is acceptable)
- First observed (FO) date (or, if discovered while banding or marking other 
birds, the date it was observed) 

- Species
- Age (Adult, immature, unknown)
- Sex (Male, female, unknown)
- Whether banded, when and by whom.

Subject: Hummingbirds in Costa Rica: An Opportunity

There may be a few Ruby-throated Hummingbirds (RTHU) lingering in the Carolina 
Piedmont this week, but by now nearly all of our Carolina hummers have flown 
south—except, of course, for those hardy individuals that seem determined to 
overwinter on the Outer Banks. 


If you think you’ll need a “hummingbird fix” before these little birds 
return next spring, consider joining me on my 25th Operation RubyThroat 
expedition to the Neotropics—this one in Guanacaste Province on the Pacific 
Coast of Coast Rica. The nine-day trip (24 Jan-1 Feb 2015) includes lots of 
opportunities for in-hand looks at numerous hummingbird species—plus other 
resident and migrant birds we encounter while banding and observing RTHU. And 
there’s plenty of time for discovering and photographing other aspects of the 
tropical dry forest, from butterflies to orchids to howler monkeys. 


For info about the upcoming trip please visit

 . No field 
experience necessary. Deposit deadline is 15 November. 


Happy (Neotropical) Hummingbird Watching!

Jackie, thanks for that suggestion. Sounds like a great idea. I live to take 
pictures even though I'm not very good at it (yet). 

I have been visited by some pretty butterflies and other birds. The larger 
birds I recognize, but there are a good handful of smaller birds I'd like to 
view up close so I can identify them.

will become easier to pick out with binoculars.

Hi Gwen,

You may want to check out some of the super-zoom cameras that are on the 
market. If you have Consumer Reports, they usually evaluate the new ones 
each year and there are also camera reviews on the internet. My husband 
bought my last camera for me on Amazon, and it had a load of reviews from 
buyers. You can still read the reviews, even if you don't purchase through 
them.

With a super-zoom, you can use the zoom like binoculars to just view the 
hummer or capture a photo if you want. If you get addicted to hummingbirds, 
like me, there will be a lot of times that you wish you could have captured 
a photo. Because Hummingbirds are so small, even with good eyesight, it is 
hard to pick out certain details on a hummingbird, especially if you have a 
rare one visiting your yard. You can download the photos and study the 
characteristics of the wings, tail, etc. With more experience, those slight 
detail differences will become easier to pick out with binoculars.

I live in Nipomo, California, along the Central California Coast. I had a 
vagrant juvenile male Ruby-throated Hummingbird, visiting my feeders from 
August 30 - September 02, 2014. I was able to photograph the characteristics

Good morning everyone!
I've been sitting on my back porch for nearly a week now with no early morning 
or dusk sightings of the little thing. I still haven't seen anything except a 
tiny black silhouette perched on a twig at the top of my grapefruit tree (maybe 
6' tall). 

Today, at 10:16 AM I went to the porch for a different reason and there he 
was!! 

Yeah!! :-)
I froze and watched as he/she sat there for maybe 2 minutes. I am so excited! 
I'm pretty certain it's the same one because it is always on the same twig. 

He just flew back to his perch -- this time for only a minute or less. 
I've got to order binoculars.

Howdy Humnet,

Ruby-throated migration here is down to an inevitable trickle. Yesterday 
and the day before, I estimated a surprisingly healthy 8 to 10 
individuals jousting for domination of the flowers. There has been very, 
very little feeder usage.

This morning, a mere 2 were contesting the front /Salvia/ garden. This 
is about an average time of the month of October for the passage to 
cease. Our spring/summer/fall host in Covington said that she wasn't 
sure there were enough birds there to justify running a banding session 
tomorrow. We'll see. I hate to quit.

The very welcome cool front passed through a few days ago, bringing 
about half an inch of rain. October being our driest month. It also 
dropped a plethora of Common Yellowthroats and Indigo Buntings. This 
morning, while watching for hummers, I could hear Rose-breasted 
Grosbeaks in every direction.

Yes. :)

Use whatever tools you have. A good ID photo--i.e., close up, sharp focus, 
showing a spread tail--can be compared to pictures in a field guide. If you can 
get such a photo, consider yourself lucky; a fleeting binocular view is often 
all we get. 


It's helpful to familiarize yourself with the possible species, from field 
guides. Even better, see them in person in the company of an experienced 
birder, who will teach you what to look for. In Miller Canyon, preferably.

I bought these on sale ($250) and am very happy with them:

You'll pay substantially more for anything significantly better.

Here's another obviously newbie question: do you use binoculars or a camera 
with a good lens to identify the hummingbird species, gender, etc? 

I'm in the market for another camera or lens for my current camera, as well as 
a pair of good/decent binoculars. Any suggestions would be appreciated. 

If this is considered off topic, I apologize. You can reply to my email:

I just spent an hour or so writing up a thoughtful post on hummingbirds 
in New Orleans and through some computer glitch, it has disappeared.  I 
live in Old Metairie and I think I know most of what you need to know.

Why don't you give me a call at 504-338-3882?

Debbie;
The migrating Ruby Throats are usually in a hurry go elsewhere here on the 
coast, so you might not see them even if they do visit your yard... but the 
winter hummingbirds will probably find your oasis eventually, and if they do, 
they will probably return each year. (One year, the first sighting of a winter 
hummingbird in my yard was after Christmas) 

Even in very urban areas it's possible to attract winter hummers. 
There are also a few Ruby Throats who stick around for the winter in the 
Western Gulf Coast, south of I-10. 

Hang in there!

I have been reading HUMNET for over a year and have tried to create a

blooming and usually always have something blooming, even in the dead of winter

I have a two-story cinder block warehouse at back of my property/garden and

Debbie,

There are several people on HUMNET who live in New Orleans who can respond
to your question much better than I can, but we also live in a city and
despite providing all of the feeders, plants, and mature trees that
hummingbirds love, we will never see as many hummingbirds as someone living
in a more rural environment.  Also, in New Orleans Ruby-throats are
migrating through in the spring and fall to, but most are probably not
staying in your area to breed.  Again, other members of HUMNET can answer
this question much better than I can.

Hi, Everyone!
I thought I added a post with my location but maybe it didn't go through. 
Thanks for the warm welcomes! I'm excited to be a member of the group. 
I'm sure I will learn a lot here. 
I live in Sebring, Florida. 
We are almost in the center of the state. Orlando is about 1.5 hours to the 
north and the Sarasota-Bradenton area is about 1.5 hours to the west on the 
beautiful Gulf Coast. ( I don't work for the tourism department, either!) 

Thank you for the helpful replies. I really appreciate the help.

I may be opening a can of worms (e.g., discussions here from many, many years

tropical flowers, but never saw the first hummingbird until we went to the NC

hummingbirds - that I ever saw. 

 
Now we're reading about hummers in several places around the state. Do you 
think they've been there all along? Is it a more recent occurrence due to the 
increase in humans planting for and putting out feeders for hummingbirds? Is 
this possibly a new, favorite route across the Gulf? Recent posts have brought

Thanks Gwen.  Salvia coccinea is certainly a great hummingbird plant for
you throughout the season, but there are so many others, including many
fall and winter blooming salvias.  You may wish to visit The Hummingbird
Forum at http://www.network54.com/Forum/439743/.  There is a group of folks
there who live and garden for hummingbirds in Florida who could give you
some really great ideas.  Good luck to you.

Hi, and welcome!
I've hosted winter hummers for several years now (and Ruby Throats during 
migration), despite living in the center of a very densely populated city 
(Houston). 

I agree with your nursery that plumbago, salvia, hamelia, & shrimp plants are 
good attractors. I don't think ixora & impatiens are used as often as nursery 
folks claim... 

Coral honeysuckle, Belize sage, Stachytarpheta, Cuphea (giant mexican or hybrid 
'David Verity'), and Callistemon (Bottlebrush) are also among the favorites in 
my area. Some people claim that Sweet Olive & Camellias are good winter 
hummingbird plants; possibly because they're the only things blooming in 
January/February & they attract lots of small insects... 

I think the best approach is to ask folks in your area what works, and what is 
easy to maintain, & what blooms at the time of year when you've got hummers... 
plants that work well in Pennsylvania are probably impossible in Corpus 
Christi, & vice versa! 

Good luck,
-RP

Hello. I'm new to the list. This is my first post. I'd live to hear any 
suggestions that other list members think may be helpful. I've spotted a 
hummingbird in my backyard for about the last month or a little more. 

It comes to perch and rest on a twig that sticks up on the top of a small 
(about 6' tall) citrus tree. It will sit there and rest for several minutes and 
then flies off towards the front of my house. This back and forth activity 
sometimes will go on for an hour or more before the bird flies off in another 
direction. I have two areas of plumbago bushes in the front of my yard as well 
as some vines growing along a fence on the side. 

I was so excited when I saw the hummingbird, I went to the nursery to buy some 
plants that hummingbirds like (according to the nursery). I bought two "fire 
bush", some salvia, red ixora, some impatiens, several shrimp plants and a few 
others with red flowers that I will have to look up the names of. The problem 
is that I have yet to see the hummingbird visit the plants. I have them in 
containers near the tree where it perches. I go out on my back porch early 
every morning and again in the afternoon to watch for it. 

I'm perplexed as to why it doesn't visit the plants I bought for it.

It's Annabelle!  It took me a few days to figure out through photos that this 
little lady is Annabelle who we hosted last winter. She first arrived on 10 Dec 
2013.  She was banded by Fred Dietrich on 21 Feb 2014.  Her band digits are 
L47034.  Annabelle was last seen here on 21 Mar 2014 and returned here 1 Oct 
2014.  This photo shows 34 on her leg band.  


I am over the moon happy to have her back and hoping Sophie and Rust return as 
well (both Rufous as well).  I'd love to know where Annabelle spends her 
summers!

Much to my surprise, two hummingbirds were on one of our feeders last night 
just at dusk. One was significantly smaller than the other, but couldn't make 
it out to be a Calliope - no matter how hard I tried. I figured they'd both be 
gone this morning with the very cool temperatures and winds. I figured wrong. 
There still is at least one hummingbird hanging around the front yard flowers 
and feeders. 

  
The biggest surprise of the day was a male, black-throated blue warbler 
bouncing around in the trees out front. Seems every spring and fall for the 
past several years we've had at least one show up. Had almost given up hope 
that I'd see one this autumn. Really glad to see him. One of my real favorites!

Can anyone give me some leads on hummer banders in Irving TX area?

 

I will be there this weekend and would love the opportunity to see species
other than the Ruby-throated if possible.

Still on-site at our feeders and hummer flowers. My salvia and cuphea are 
really at their best right now and our trumpet creeper has been blooming quite 
late this year. The birds Allen banded a few weeks back weren't "race-fit," so 
they're hanging around to tank up. Some fairly cold temperatures predicted for 
this weekend, so we may say goodbye then - if not before. Either way, I'm 
keeping my feeders out until it gets too cold to keep them ice-free.

Louisiana birders,

Hummingbird reports have continued to trickle in and things ought to be picking 
up soon, so keep working through your Ruby-throats to see if you can find a 
Rufous or something more exotic. Please continue to report your western winter 
hummer observations to me (ejohnson AT Audubon.org), LAbird, or HUMNET for 
recording in our weekly report and database, providing the following 
information: 

- Your name
- Your address (town only is acceptable)
- First observed (FO) date (or, if discovered while banding or marking other 
birds, the date it was observed) 

- Species
- Age (Adult, immature, unknown)
- Sex (Male, female, unknown)
- Whether banded, when and by whom.

If additional information is learned through further observation or banding or 
if a mistake needs to be corrected, please report those updates and I'll make 
the changes. If you sent me a report and it didn't make it into this summary, I 
apologize and please let me know. 


Happy hummingbirding,

Subject: [Saw-whet Net] Bob Sargent's memorial service



I'm not sure the details have been posted on this list, so at the risk of 
duplication, the celebration of life memorial for Bob Sargent will take place 
from 2-5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25 at the Trussville Civic Center, 5381 
Trussville-Clay Rd. Trussville, AL 35173. Information about memorial 
contributions in Bob's name will be forthcoming in the next and final edition 
of Netlines, the newsletter of the Hummer/Bird Study Group, which Bob and 
Martha founded and which will be dissolving now with his passing. I'll pass on 
the information once I have it.

Fat fingered it! What I meant to write was that Allen banded 8 birds in 90 
minutes at our house on Wednesday. We are still hosting quite a few birds, but 
they are acting more civil towards each other. Think they must be more 
concerned about bulking up to go than fighting. All of the birds were 
hatch-year. Sure hope that Berylline decides to come for a visit. People keep 
asking me when I'm going to have another "rare" visitor. I may have used up my 
quota in 2005,
