Another big celebration today at Hilton Pond Center:

Exactly 30 years ago (27 Jul 1984) I received authorization from the federal 
Bird Banding Lab to begin working with hummingbirds. At 3 p.m. that afternoon I 
pulled the string on my homemade trap baited with sugar water and caught my 
very first hummer--a recently fledged male Ruby-throated Hummingbird that 
received band X37373. 


In three decades since I've banded 4,920 RTHU at the Center, with more than 12% 
of them returning in at least one later year. I've learned a lot about about 
hummer longevity, site fidelity, population dynamics, and migration, and I've 
derived quite a bit of personal and professional pleasure from these tiny balls 
of fluff. 


Among other things, my interest in ruby-throats has introduced me to a 
cherished assemblage of students, hummingbird enthusiasts, and fellow 
banders--including those who have been with me on Operation RubyThroat 
expeditions to five Central American countries where I've banded 1,113 hummers. 
I am grateful for all those friends here and abroad and for the hummingbirds 
that have taught me much about the natural world of which we all are part. At 
67, I doubt I'll have another 30 years working with ruby-throats, but I'm not 
about to quit just yet! 


Happy Hummingbirding!

Kathi, in Ruby-throated the U-shaped pendulum arc is an aggression display, 
intended to intimidate a poacher into leaving the displayer's territory. The 
mating shuttle looks quite different, a rapid lateral display only a foot or 
two wide.

Humnetters:

I am forwarding for comment.  My own response is astonishment that 
submitting hummingbirds to this kind of research would be rewarded with 
publication.

Subject: 	[Tweeters] Hummingbirds and artificial sweeteners

From: 	Rachel Lawson 
To: 	



I have always wondered about the criteria hummingbirds use to determine 
what makes a nectar source worth using, including how they might react 
to artificial sweeteners.  My daughter Clare Brown found the following 
article:


Stromberg, M. R. and P. B. Johnsen (1990). "Hummingbird Sweetness 
Preferences: Taste or Viscosity?" The Condor 92(3): 606-612.

Black-chinned Hummingbirds (Archilochus alexanderi) were offered 
combinations of sucrose and artificial sweeteners (saccharin, aspartame) 
at various concentrations and viscosity levels. Sucrose at 40% 
concentration was preferred over lower concentrations. Sucrose at 20% 
was preferred over artificial sweeteners, plain water, and low 
sucrose/high viscosity samples. Additions of artificial sweeteners to 
sucrose samples had no effect on nectar consumption and, therefore, were 
judged to be ineffective stimuli rather than aversive. Artificial 
increases in viscosity had no effects on the amount of nectar removed as 
long as a minimum of 15% sucrose was present. Hummingbirds responded to 
decreased sucrose concentrations by increasing sampling behavior at 
feeders; at increased sucrose levels, sampling behavior decreased. 
Chemosensory mechanisms rather than physical measures of viscosity are 
responsible for the sensory evaluation and the subsequent selection of 
sucrose nectars.

If anyone is interested, I will send the link to the whole paper.

I'm happy to report that, as many of you suggested, the mystery plants turned 
out to be sunflowers. 


And unlike the 4 I had growing last year there are dozens this year.

It's so nice to look out and see an all those bright yellow flowers.

We have had a resident adult male that has been in our back yard for several 
months. A ritual that we have is to watch him, and any other hummers, in the 
evening. Yesterday, I saw a female hummingbird in the back yard. And, for the 
last two nights, we have seen the male perform the U-shaped dive. Tonight, 
after he finished his U-shaped dive, we walked over to where the bottom part of 
the U occurred, and a female hummingbird was perched in a honeysuckle and flew 
away. 

 
So, we assume that our flashy male was trying to woo this female hummer into a 
few seconds of romance. This made us wonder how late hummingbirds could lay 
eggs here in the upper Midwest. We have the Ruby-throated hummingbird monograph 
written by Tara Robinson and Bob and Martha Sargent, published in the Birds of 
North America series. It states that egg dates are 25 May- 2 Sept in s. 
Ontario, 29 May- 6 Aug in Vermont, 24 May- 22 Jul in Massachusetts and 27 Apr- 
14 Aug in Arkansas. 

 
With a 14 day incubation and another 21 days in the nest, we assume that there 
is still plenty of time for a brood of hummers here.

Allen,

Apparently the BBL requests longevity records to be submitted through their 
regular band recovery portal here: 

https://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/BBL/bblretrv/

The directions for this (and other info on longevity records) I found here:

Humbanders,

This morning I was banding hummingbirds at two sites within 1/4 mile of each 
other in Waterloo Twp., Jackson County, Michigan, when among the many returns I 
had a female that I had originally banded at that site on June 8, 

2006 as an after hatch-year female. That makes her 9 years 1 month old, the 
oldest I've ever recaptured, and possibly a record for the species! In my 
public hummingbird programs, I give a record longevity for the species as 9 
years 1 month that I've seen quoted before here, but looking at the BBL website 
there are two individuals listed there at 9 years 0 months. This bird has been 
recaptured in many years since being banded, including just last summer when 
she was one of three 8-year-old birds that I recaptured. 


So, what is the best way to get this into the BBL database? I have not been 
submitting returns (I have hundreds of them going back more than a decade). 

Recently, I submitted my own Carolina Wren that I recaptured in my yard (where 
originally banded) via the reportband.gov site. But I don't know if that alone 
gets a longevity record into the database (and onto the website). I should 
probably drop a short note to North American Bird Bander too...

My situation is likely different from yours, but at this time of year, I 
have plenty of flowers to feed any birds that may come through.  Where I 
live, there are no residents during the nesting season and most migrants 
that I see after the nesting season are not feeder birds anyway.  
Therefore, I do not worry with feeders - at this time.

As it happens, I leave Thursday for 22 days.  A friend will stay at the 
house and take care of my aged dog.  We've moved plants in containers to 
a single spot that can be watered by a sprinkler with a timer.

I will leave with sugar water ready in the refrigerator, if a potential 
returnee winterer appears and my friend will get feeders out.  During 
the peak of migration and during the winter, I would not leave without 
having a reliable person to tend feeders.

Good luck,

NLN

I will be going away for a week, leaving in about two weeks.  There is no
one available to fill my hummingbird feeders, so I am debating whether it is
better to leave the birds with one or two days' worth of sugar water in the
feeders, or just take the feeders down and put them back up when I get home.


 

Will having empty feeders (after a day or two) discourage the birds more
than having no feeders up for that period of time?

Big news! As I join other U.S. citizens in celebrating the Fourth of July, I 
also observe another event: The publication of my 600th installment of "This 
Week at Hilton Pond." This anniversary edition returns to the Center's roots in 
answering the question: "What is the Piedmont?" and as a bonus includes a 
portfolio of 50-plus images of flora, fauna, and phenomena I've observed 
locally in 15 years since I started this blog. Also included is recognition for 
those special folks who contributed to Hilton Pond Center the latter half of 
June. It's all on-line athttp://www.hiltonpond.org/ThisWeek140614.html 


Don't forget to scroll down for a list of birds banded or recaptured during the 
period. (Note the especially old returning hummingbird.) 


Happy (Anniversary) Nature Watching!

Today, I’m standing on my back deck and a female hummer goes right to the top 
of my head and buzzes around a bit, then fed off the blooms of a Texas Sage I 
had on a railing and then it came back to the top of my head. Then it dawned on 
me. I had my reading glasses on the top of my head and yes, the frames are red

I recently found that I had an incredible surplus of hummingbird feeders due to 
collecting them and trying new ones over more than 30 years of feeding birds. 
As such, I gave away over 20 feeders to coworkers who are interested in 
starting to feed hummers. I studiously avoided including any of the "bee 
guards" for the 4 Fountain-type feeders and explained that I feared bill 
breakage from them. Also, my experience with bees has been that the heads get 
stuck in the guards and leaves the "business" end protruding (and my fingers 
vulnerable.) 


While don't know if any feeder has been 100 percent safe, it's my assertion 
that the fewer parts restricting entry to the nectar the better.

A website visitor emailed me about this problematic feeder, including a photo

Begin forwarded message:

> I just purchased a Stokes Select Impatiens Hummingbird Feeder with a single 
hole in each flower. I put it out at night and the next morning, a hummingbird 
was dying as his tongue was caught down inside the feeder. I believe it was 
caught in a slot of the yellow flower, which is down inside. I had to take the 
feeder apart to free him but he died shortly after. I contacted Hiatt 
Manufacturing who asked if I had the single hole or the multi hole flower. 
Apparently, they have made some design changes. I don't know which version is 
the newer model. She is checking with the design team on the feeder but I want 
people to know not to use the version I have, which is the single hole flower.

It's not stinging nettle, or at least it definitely isn't Urtica dioica, but 
it may still have some irritant to bare hands and gloves are a good idea.  I 
like Aelita's approach to weeds--leave some until I know for sure what they 
are--but if it's a really aggressively invasive species, that can cause 
problems.  If there are suddenly a lot of them, it's likely your plant *is* 
an invasive species.

Carol and Humnetters
Some Ruby-throated are already far to the northeast of Toronto,  Canada.  I 
have reports there from friends that some of the population of  RTHU appear 
to be mostly males attempting to defend breeding territories.
 
I think the most active hummer bander down into interior Florida would  
likely be Mr. Fred Dietrich of Tallahassee. I do not know how far he  ranges.  
He works under Master Bander Fred Bassett.
 
I'm thrilled that you have lots of hummers.  I'm not sure what it  means 
about migration patterns there.
 
Good luck guys.

Nan, it's absolutely true, and it's the reason  parents are instructed not 
to feed honey to infants, because babies' digestive  systems have not yet 
developed the ability to destroy the bacterial spores  before they can 
germinate. Botulinum is the most deadly toxin known to  science. From the
CDC 
website: "Honey can contain the bacteria that causes  infant botulism so, 
children less than 12 months old should not be fed honey.  Honey is safe for

persons 1 year of age and  older."

http://www.cdc.gov/nczved/divisions/dfbmd/diseases/botulism/

Pure  honey does not spoil when sealed from the atmosphere, but even small 
amounts  of water reverse its antimicrobial properties and transform it into

an  excellent culture medium. Honey-water is possibly the worst thing one 
could  put into a hummingbird feeder.

Except maybe honey-water with red dye  #40 added...

Humnetters,

There seems to be no solution to this problem for our listserver.
Bellsouth, Yahoo, Aol adresses are generating errors and I assume members
are not receiving their humnet mailings.  See below for an example with
link.

I am afraid I am going to have to be removing the addresses that are
generating these errors over the next several days.  This may be the end of
the listserver as we know it, but I hope it will not.  So far, gmail
addresses are working, although you may have to get our mailings out of

Nan, it's absolutely true, and it's the reason  parents are instructed not 
to feed honey to infants, because babies' digestive  systems have not yet 
developed the ability to destroy the bacterial spores  before they can 
germinate. Botulinum is the most deadly toxin known to  science. From the CDC 
website: "Honey can contain the bacteria that causes  infant botulism so, 
children less than 12 months old should not be fed honey.  Honey is safe for 
persons 1 year of age and  older."

http://www.cdc.gov/nczved/divisions/dfbmd/diseases/botulism/

Pure  honey does not spoil when sealed from the atmosphere, but even small 
amounts  of water reverse its antimicrobial properties and transform it into 
an  excellent culture medium. Honey-water is possibly the worst thing one 
could  put into a hummingbird feeder.

Except maybe honey-water with red dye  #40 added...

We've come a long way since 1961.  First of all, honey is not a natural 
food of hummingbirds.  It is manufactured by bees and hummers are not 
known to raid beehives.  Secondly, I've done a certain amount of 
experimentation that does not involve hummers. Honey water solutions 
spoil much more quickly than comparable sugar water solutions.  I have 
also read that honey can be a source of botulism [/Clostridium botulinum 
]/, but I don't know 
how valid that might be.

Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:23:28 -0400
This year my first Ruby-throated Hummingbird at Hilton Pond Center for Piedmont 
Natural History tied a record for earliest spring arrival on 27 March, and I've 
banded an unprecedented number of early spring ruby-throats in the month since 
then. My analysis of this phenomenon is the subject of my latest "This Week at 
Hilton Pond" photo essay for 27 Mar-21 Apr 2014. To access the installment, 
please see 

http://www.hiltonpond.org/ThisWeek140327.html

While there, don't forget to scroll down for lists of all birds banded and 
recaptured during the period; the returns are especially interesting, with a 
couple of very old American Goldfinches re-appearing in our traps. I also 
include numerous nature notes and an acknowledgement for recent supporters of 
our education, research, and conservation initiatives. 


Happy (Spring) Nature Watching!

What with an unusual abundance of spring hummingbirds to be banded--plus 
renovations on the old farmhouse at Hilton Pond Center--I've been slowed 
considerably in producing my summary report about our March 2014 Operation 
RubyThroat expedition to Crooked Tree in Belize. At long last it is finished 
and posted. 


I provide this detailed summary as a thank-you and permanent record for the 
generous and hard-working citizen scientists who help these trips succeed, but 
I also like sharing everything with other birders and naturalists. I hope 
you'll enjoy the latest write-up, which serves as the 7-16 March 2014 
installment of "This Week at Hilton Pond." 


The photo essay includes nearly 150 images of Neotropical flora and fauna--more 
than usual and my attempt to drive away this winter blast affecting much of the 
U.S. this week.

Humnettters,

Several email service providers have implemented a new filtering regime called 
DMARC. http://www.dmarc.org 

This is causing Humnet delivery problems for users of Comcast, MSN, Yahoo, 
Hotmail, and perhaps others. It is causing your list manager problems by 
generating many error messages per day. This is not something I can repair ... 
It will be up to the listserv admins to get the proper registry or forwarding 
regime going I think. In the meantime, if you think you are missing humnet 
messages you probably are. You can read humnet messages on the web. Find the 
link on our info page http://www.museum.lsu.edu/~Remsen/HUMNET.html

Mornin' Y'All,

I love to watch hummers bathe and it takes lucky chance encounters for 
me to experience that.  A little while ago, I looked out to see a small 
bird bathing on the large leaf of a Canna.  It was the Buff-bellied!  
She was resting on the leaf and spent more than a minute splashing in 
the tiny amount of water.  Even if I had a camera, I would not have been 
quick enough to get a shot.

I've seen Buffies fly through mist and I've seen them brush up against 
wet leaves, but this was the first time, I observed an honest to 
goodness bath of this species.  What fun!

Unlike the Male Ruby-throat that arrived on March 23rd and was quickly chased 
off by my 40 + butter-butts, I had a male arrive on April 3rd and took up 
residence on the branch above one of the feeders and even went after a couple 
of butter-butts that came too close to him. 


Today, I had a female hit one of the feeders and she also perched just above 
the feeder and kept coming down for more sips.

Louisiana birders,

As the season is wrapping up, please review and submit your final wintering
hummingbird reports for inclusion in the 2013-14 database.  Regarding the
little flurry of reports that went to HUMNET over the last couple days
following Nancy Newfield's question, I didn't add those into the database
because there wasn't enough information to match with what I had.  Please
send me the details.

Please continue to report winter hummingbirds to me (ejohnson AT
Audubon.org), LAbird, or HUMNET for including in the western winter
hummingbird database.
- 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.

Happy hummingbirding,

Subject: LA Western Winter Hummingbird Report #16
From: "Johnson, Erik" <ejohnson AT AUDUBON.ORG>
Date: Fri, 4 Apr 2014 17:18:53 +0000
Louisiana birders,

As the season is wrapping up, please review and submit your final wintering 
hummingbird reports for inclusion in the 2013-14 database. Regarding the little 
flurry of reports that went to HUMNET over the last couple days following Nancy 
Newfield's question, I didn't add those into the database because there wasn't 
enough information to match with what I had. Please send me the details. 


Please continue to report winter hummingbirds to me (ejohnson AT Audubon.org), 
LAbird, or HUMNET for including in the western winter hummingbird database. 

- 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. 


Happy hummingbirding,
Erik Johnson
S Lafayette, LA

 I still have one female Rufous as of April 3. The final two male Rufous moved 
on 3/30 and 3/31. Can't tell if she is wearing a band since she only appears on 
occasion.

Mornin' Hummernuts,

Now that March has passed into springtime, many, if not most, wintering 
hummers have moved back to their natal homelands, but there are 
exceptions.  I still have a Buff-bellied [7th season returnee], an adult 
female Rufous, and as of yesterday, a young male Ruby-throated that has 
not yet completed his molt into adulthood.

I would be interested to hear what is left.

Hi Nancy

As of yesterday the only winter hummingbird left here is the female ruby throat 
that was first 

Banded in 2009. Still has her white spot on her head. Mixing it up with the 
other ruby throats. 

I will look for her tomorrow, I was at work all day.

I still have one female Rufous that I believe has been here since October and 
an adult male Rufous (or possibly more than one and they're just moving 
through). None are color marked and I have not seen bands on any of them. 
Doesn't mean they're not banded, I just haven't been able to see any bands.

Mornin' Hummernuts,

Now that March has passed into springtime, many, if not most, wintering 
hummers have moved back to their natal homelands, but there are 
exceptions.  I still have a Buff-bellied [7th season returnee], an adult 
female Rufous, and as of yesterday, a young male Ruby-throated that has 
not yet completed his molt into adulthood.

I would be interested to hear what is left.

Hi Humnuts. Two years ago I set out to find a couple of freeze-hardy, 
winter-flowering plants for the yard, since winter honeysuckle doesn't seem to 
like the heavy clay soil here. I went with Grevillea "Scarlet Sprite," which I 
planted in a raised bed with fast draining soil, and Mahonia "Charity," which 
went straight into the ground. Last year's mild winter wasn't much of a test, 
but I'm happy to report that both survived this year's hard freezes, bloomed 
well and got hummer use. 


The Grevillea is still flowering, I posted a photo 
here; https://www.flickr.com/photos/89510826 AT N05/13541913685/ 

The Mahonia bloomed earlier in the winter and it's flowers have been replaced 
by attractive blue "grapes" that migrating thrushes seem to favor. 


Also thought some in N. Louisiana might like to know there's a Bottlebrush 
available (Woodlander's Hardy Red) that will survive temps in the single 
digits.....nice to have a splash of red in the brown landscape when the 
Ruby-throats return.

Y'All,

The subject individual [now color-marked] is still present this 
morning.  In my experience, especially here at home, northbound migrants 
seldom seldom stay more than a day, if that.

After yesterday's deluge [4 inches], there is a good showing of migrant 
Ruby-throateds, mostly savoring the super sweet nectar of a Dwarf Red 
Buckeye as well as Coral Honeysuckle and feeders.

Other winterers still present are the 7th season returnee Buff-bellied 
[present daily since 10-28-2013] and a female Rufous [banded 01-10-2014] 
present sporadically in recent weeks. Apparently, quite a few winterers 
are staying late this year. I've received numerous reports of Rufous, 
including a few adult males, plus an immature male Calliope that has not 
yet begun gorget molt and at least 1 other Buff-bellied .  The winter 
season is over - at least that's what I tell my husband.

############################################################################################################ 



I leave the concept of 'arrested development' of Ruby-throated 
Hummingbirds to others.  My own theory is one of normal development out 
of sync by about 2-3 months because of actual age being out of sync by 
about the same amount of time.  Should a male that hatched in August 
reach full adult plumage at the same point in the spring as one that 
hatched in April?  My guess is NO, but I emphasize GUESS.

Every winter we handle dozens of young Ruby-throateds that are a couple 
of months [or more] behind the young Rufous in terms of plumage 
development.  In January and February, they will exhibit 70%-90% 
maxillar corrugations while the percentage of corrugations on the 
maxillae of young Rufous will be 30%-40%, rarely more.

The characteristics that were odd about this individual were the gorget 
seemed to be complete with new feathers that were white with dark 
centers while the primaries were only half molted and primary molt might 
well have been arrested insofar as there were no missing or sheathed 
feathers, but the old, outer primaries were worn.  Yet, rectrix molt had 
not yet initiated.  Often with these birds the rectrices are replaced at 
about the same time as are the primaries and also contour molt 
accelerates.  I don't think I've ever seen a hummingbird of any species 
that finished its gorget without even initiating the rectrix molt.

Kelly, yes, I would like to see your images.  A Ruby-throated that 
departed here in the last week had only a single red feather and that 
seems to be typical of these winterers.  A young male Ruby-throated with 
significant gorget development is rare in southern Louisiana in winter.

And, BBBB, I, too, am amazed at how little we really know about the 
entire life histories of these beautiful birds.  It is enough to keep us 
out of trouble and to keep the next generation busy for their entire 
lifetimes.

Nan

Why not? Snowcaps are lovely little hummingbirds. :)

Two ruby trhs were seen here about three weeks ago but I didn't see them
myself so I didn't report them.

I have two feeders up now.  The woodpeckers are enjoying them.

Some snow here this morning also.  I hope those bunny eggs don't have snow
caps on them.
