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. 


The installment is at  http://www.hiltonpond.org/ThisWeek140307.html

Happy (Neotropical) Nature Watching!

Subject: Humnet problems

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

We went to a Batfest at Onondaga Cave State Park, one of my regular humbanding 
sites. This tame Egyptian Fruit Bat was part of the show-and-tell session. What 
a sweetie! Softest fur I've ever felt. I just checked off another bucket list 
item. 


Later, we helped mistnet some wild Tri-color Bats at the cave's natural 
entrance with some grad students doing a survey.

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.

Erik, my 2 female Rufous hummers have departed (I think).  Last one was seen
March 25th, other one earlier--probably March 15th.

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

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.

Subject: Freeze notes
From: Lizette Wroten <lkwroten AT YAHOO.COM>

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.

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

NAN . . .

The RTHU you describe looks like the some of the ones I see in Costa Rica in 
January and early February and in Nicaragua in late February. In Belize by 
mid-March nearly all have completed their wing and tail molt--especially the 
"adult" males that are ready to go. 


I doubt a RTHU that wintered in the tropics would attempt a long-distance 
migration (trans-Gulf or overland) with old primary feathers, so perhaps your 
bird was one of those that wintered along the Gulf Coast. 


Is it possible these young males that winter in your area have some sort of 
arrested development as far as molt is concerned? 


Hugs,

BILL

Good Afternoon, Y'All,

Caught an interesting immature male Ruby-throated Hummingbird this 
morning here at Casa Colibrí.  At first glance in the field, he appeared 
to be an adult with a complete gorget.  Once in hand, though, I could 
see that he had a spot of white feathers with dark, non-iridescent 
centers on his chin.  These feathers were not in sheath, but rather they 
were fully expanded.  There were no signs of molt of any of the contour 
feathers, which were bright and fresh as would be expected on an 
incoming migrant.

His primaries [flight feathers] were all intact.  P1-P5 were adult and 
fresh.  P6-P10 were immature in shape, faded and worn.  His faded and 
very worn rectrices [tail feathers] were all immature.  Maxillar 
corrugations were about 20%, mostly to the middle of the bill.  Weight 
was 3.4 grams without any visible fat.

I regard this bird to be a winterer but cannot see anything absolutely 
diagnostic about him.  Would a hummingbird migrate a long distance in 
such condition?

On 18 February 2014, I noted a young male Ruby-throated with a perfectly 
clear throat using flowers on the deck.  There were already 2 banded, 
color-marked young male Ruby-throated with very little or no gorget 
development.  I saw this new bird only a few times until 24 February, 
according to my notes.

One of the banded individuals was last noted on 10 March, while the 
other stayed until 18 March.  One had started some gorget development 
while the other had not.  Both were molting P4, 5, and 6, and both had 
already acquired a few adult rectrices.

It is possible that the current bird is the same individual noted in 
February, but there is no way to determine such.  Unfortunately, I do 
not own a camera.

Comments, please.

Thanks Bob, Nancy, et al. 

I have accepted it is one of the two birds banded in February. This one is 
still missing quite a bit of its adult plumage. And the other is missing even 
more. He was at the feeder yesterday looking like he had been through a 
hurricane - lots of molting going on. I am guessing it is the second of the two 
young RTs banded. I think it had one painted feather left - sticking straight 
up. 


Just saw the female Allen's that was banded and she is gorgeous - even without 
paint. 


Ah, if they would just stay a little longer.

Since Fred Bassett and his fine banders continue to document so many

learn to expect anything in the way of plumage differences in winter.

Mr. Tom Sylvest is yet another of my heroes in our ever growing list  of 
friends who love hummingbirds.  Sir, I greatly admire your kind and  gentle 
manner and assistance that you gave me early on.  One of the  very  special

it does allow us to call some of them Second Year birds when we  band them.

That is a likely explanation.  Often, I have noticed that as northward 
migration becomes more imminent, individuals tend to wander, sometimes 
considerable distances.  Once, a color-marked male Broad-billed was 
noted in 2 different yards about 5 miles from the site where he had 
wintered faithfully.  By late afternoon, he was back 'home', but just a 
few days later, this guy moved on for good.

Here at my place the winterers have been restless.  Two immature male 
Ruby-throateds had not yet developed gorgets.  One marked green [which 
still looked fresh since early January] was beginning to show a few 
clusters of red iridescent feathers when he disappeared about 2 weeks 
ago.  The other one, banded about the same time, still had a 
fresh-looking paint job, and he had not a single red gorget feather 
yet.  He was last seen a couple of days ago.

Buffy is still here, but she is wandering as well.  Sigh.

Bob & Erik, 

I have written Susan Heath who bands in my yard to see if she might have banded 
in Lake Jackson recently. It would not be the first time we had a migrant from 
her yard. Year before last, she captured one here in fall migration that she 
had banded the previous day in her yard - which is actually south of here. She 
did band here in early February and banded two immature males. But I haven't 
seen a bird with paint for a few weeks now. I guess it is possible that one of 
them left my yard and has now returned, but the paint sure looks fresh.

Bob, Jane, HUMNET, 

I was initially thinking the same thing as Bob, but if it has yellow paint on 
the crown, it very likely could have been an over-wintering bird recently 
banded in TX, LA, or elsewhere along the Gulf Coast that may be dispersing or 
migrating, rather than a trans/circum-Gulf migrant from south of us. If there 
is a bander in the area, this could be a really interesting bird to try to 
recapture.

Sorry, I probably did not describe it properly. It was a male with a partially 
filled in gorget. I did not see the band, just the yellow paint on its head - 
definitely paint and not pollen.

From: "Johnson, Erik" <ejohnson AT AUDUBON.ORG>
Date: Sat, 22 Mar 2014 04:23:51 +0000
Louisiana birders,

Only a few weeks left of western winter hummingbird season. Thanks for 
continuing to send updates on departing birds and for new birds passing 
through. Please keep those reports coming, including accurate LO dates if 
possible. This you can do more easily when the hummer has been banded and 
marked. 


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

Subject: Spring's Message to Winter-Weary Birders
From: Wendy Kaplan <wenbirdy AT AOL.COM>

To Fellow Birders -
Sometimes life takes jagged, intense and unexpected curves, taking each of us 
in turn away from our routines, passions and joys...... 

Then, in the midst of one's private anguish, each year on its own intentional 
schedule, Spring surprises us suddenly with its fashionable perennial reveal! 
Unrelenting in its insistence on us to halt in our self-consumed courses, we 
have no choice but to stop, raise our eyes, cock our ears, inhale, take notice 
and smile as our hearts recognize the familiar, albeit long-absent song of the 
returning early migrant, the sight of a much-awaited flighted gem to the 
feeder, the ardent male songster seeking companionship and proclaiming 
territorial rights, or the resident backyard Barred Owl couple who nest each 
year and grace us with their calls and winged majesty - and willing or not, the 
committed birder scribbles those rote seasonal journal entries, remembers a 
lighter heart, looks outward, and is gratefully reminded that the natural world 
is still spinning in its wise, perfected cycles with seasonal stunning beauty, 
just as it should! 

     Binocs at the ready.....
     Happy Spring, y'all!
              Cheers!

________________________________


I too have had a first-observed-of-season  adult male Ruby-throat the last few 
days.  That's pretty late for me, at this spot.  Usually, by about March 6 or 7 
they're back. 


Still have at least one adult male Rufous and adult male Blackchinned.  I 
suspect this yard held 2 ad male Blackchins this winter, probably a first for 
me.  Also, an immature looking Archilochus with remnants of a white bander's 
mark on the forehead showed up today at the feeder.  It still had white 
tail-tips, and it held its tail very still, so I'm assuming it's a 
Ruby-throat.  Nancy, did you band such a bird here a month or two ago when 
y'all came?  BTW, I didn't see any banders mark on my adult male Blackchin(s) 
when we got back from out of town. 


I'd email you offlist but lost your address again.  (sorry...)

Great!  I have a male and still have a colormarked female. The male was 
shuttling next to her but was ignored.

LaBirders and Humnetters,

I've been patiently waiting, and FINALLY I got the first Ruby-throated
Hummingbird of the season here in Penn Mill Lakes Subdivision (near Lake
Ramsey) in St. Tammany Parish today, March 16th.  Nice adult male, which I
always get first in spring.

Finally! FOS male ruby throat hummingbird and northern parulas here in 
Weyanoke, LA (northwest corner of West Feliciana Parish; near "the corner of 
the boot"). About a week later than usual; not surprising given the weather 
this year. 


Kind regards,

I finally have an adult male Ruby-throated HB at the feeders, so spring has 
arrived here in my Dickinson yard. 


Many wintering hummingbirds still remain: two immature RT males, a female RT, 
at least two immature male Rufous, at least one female Rufous and another 
Rufous/Allen's female were still here yesterday. 


I hate to see them go.

Our 16-28 February 2014 installment of "This Week at Hilton Pond" isn't 
actually about the Carolina Piedmont--mostly because I've been in Honduras with 
Ernesto Carman scouting study sites for my original Ruby-throated Hummingbird 
research. The latest photo essay--which includes a ton of images of Neotropical 
flora and fauna (including hummers, of course!)--covers the first half of our 
stay near the cloud forests of Pico Bonito. To view the write-up, see

From: "Johnson, Erik" <ejohnson AT AUDUBON.ORG>
Date: Wed, 5 Mar 2014 01:55:11 +0000
Louisiana birders,

Thanks for the great updates coming in this week! Please keep them coming. If 
you've been holding your cards, now's the time to get them in before it's next 
winter already (and I think Mother Nature tried to skip spring and summer and 
go right back to winter yesterday and today). And of course, reporting accurate 
LO dates are especially encouraged. This you can do more easily when the hummer 
has been banded and marked. 


At this point, I will stop accepting any new arrival Ruby-throat sightings 
unless there is clear indication of wing molt (suggesting a locally 
over-wintering bird rather than a new migrant). I will, however, continue to 
accept any and all reports of "western" hummingbird species for as long as you 
keep seeing them, which may be well into March or even April. 


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

Labird and Humnet,
Today, I met Erik Johnson at Elaine Bourque's fabulous hummingbird garden for a 
late winter banding session. We recaptured a Black-chinned hummingbird that I 
banded last winter at this same site. I was hoping for this one special 
hummingbird, and could not believe when we caught her. The really special thing 
about this hummingbird is that we know her return route to Louisiana included a 
stop in Arizona. 

Last September I was thrilled to get a call from fellow bander, Susan 
Wethington, that they recaptured her in the Chiricahua Mtns of southern 
Arizona. She had plenty of fat and weighed what you would expect of a 
hummingbird in migration. We do not know where she nested last summer, but we 
do know something about her migration and that she returned to Louisiana for 
the winter.

Lanny and Humnetters
Lanny, thanks for all you do for those of us that love hummingbirds.   This 
is a great resource for all that wish to understand more about these tiny  
migrant birds.
 
The first of Alabama's northbound Ruby-throated should begin to  be seen 
about the last couple of days of February or the first two or three days  of 
March.  Look for an unusually large numbers of stunning adult males to  
suddenly appear at feeders along the coast and in remnants of flower gardens 
not 

wiped out by the global warming single-digit  temperatures.
 
Good luck guys.  Don't put away your winter clothes just yet; no  matter, 
the hummers will be here on time as usual.

Humnetters,

My annual Ruby-throated migration map project is  underway, with the first 
credible sighting coming from Gulf Breeze, Florida,  on February 21. If 
you're not familiar with the map, its purpose is to illuminate the progress of 

the leading edge of the northward migration, to  help people get their 
feeders out in time to help the first migrants. As such,  my emphasis is on 
clarity of presentation, not simply plotting all of the  sightings folks send 
me--there are plenty of other maps that do that, such as  Journey North.

I welcome your participation. Even if your sighting  isn't the first for 
your area, and thus probably won't get plotted on the map,  it will still 
become part of a large database that researchers have used to analyze migration 

in interesting ways. Every data point is  important.

Here's where to find the map:  http://www.hummingbirds.net/map.html

Louisiana birders,

Sorry for the delay in getting an update posted. I've been hopefully keeping up 
with reports coming in, but if you see anything missing or incorrect, please 
let me know. Sadly the winter hummingbird season will be wrapping up soon and 
spring arriving Ruby-throats are just around the corner - these first birds 
arriving in late February and early March will almost certainly be adult males, 
so at this point, I will stop accepting any new adult male Ruby-throat 
sightings. On March 1, I will stop accepting any new Ruby-throated Hummingbird 
reports, as it will be impossible to distinguish from birds locally 
over-wintering (but please submit a LO date of any continuing birds). I will 
continue to accept reports of any "western" hummingbird species for as long as 
you keep seeing them, which may be well into March or even April. 

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. Please report the last observed (LO) date, if possible, when the 
bird leaves. This you can do more easily when the hummer has been banded and 
marked. 

Happy hummingbirding,
Erik Johnson

I saw our first hummingbird yesterday - February 23. A male rubythroat. Even 
though I kept nectar plants blooming through the winter and either hummingbird 
or Oriole feeders up all winter (at the encouragement of Hum-netters), I did 
not see a hummingbird between the first week of October and yesterday. This is 
typical for us. 


I live in MIcanopy, FL, about halfway between Ocala and Gainesville, in north 
central Florida (peninsula).

Humnetters,

My annual Ruby-throated migration map project is underway, with the first 
credible sighting coming from Gulf Breeze, Florida, on February 21. If you're 
not familiar with the map, its purpose is to illuminate the progress of the 
leading edge of the northward migration, to help people get their feeders out 
in time to help the first migrants. As such, my emphasis is on clarity of 
presentation, not simply plotting all of the sightings folks send me--there are 
plenty of other maps that do that, such as Journey North. 


I welcome your participation. Even if your sighting isn't the first for your 
area, and thus probably won't get plotted on the map, it will still become part 
of a large database that researchers have used to analyze migration in 
interesting ways. Every data point is important. 


Here's where to find the map: http://www.hummingbirds.net/map.html

Subject: Louisiana Western Winter Hummingbird report #12
From: "Johnson, Erik" <ejohnson AT AUDUBON.ORG>

Louisiana birders,

Looks like the cold snap continued to bring birds into feeders over the last 
couple weeks. Nice to see lots of new reports, so keep those feeders going! 
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. Please report the last observed (LO) date, if possible, when the 
bird leaves. This you can do more easily when the hummer has been banded and 
marked. 

Happy hummingbirding,
Erik Johnson
S Lafayette, LA

Now that 2013 is over I've compiled my 12-month bird banding results and 
present them as the 22-31 Dec installment of "This Week at Hilton Pond." 
Included is a section about our 2013 hummingbird banding season. 


I've tried to put everything together in readable format with simple charts, 
images, and anecdotes about some of the the year's more noteworthy bandings and 
returns. To view the photo essay, please visit 

http://www.hiltonpond.org/ThisWeek131222.html .

While there, don't forget to scroll down for a list of birds banded and 
recaptured just in the last half of December, as well as a few miscellaneous 
nature notes and acknowledgements for end-of-year donors to the Center. 


Happy (New Year) Nature Watching!

Subject: Christmas Bird Count Hummingbirds at Venezia Gardens and Bird Sanctuary
From: Noel Peyton <pplace AT CHARTER.NET>
Date: Wed, 1 Jan 2014 10:37:49 -0600
Hi all,

Linda Beall arrived early 12/30/13 at Venezia Gardens and Bird Sanctuary in
Slidell, LA. , as I needed help to sort out birds for the Christmas Bird
Count.  

 

She re-confirmed two birds I had already pulled the band numbers off using
the big lens:  "Ms. Pink" (C25798), who has arrived every year in late July
or early August for the past 8 years.  She has already finished her molt and
appears quite healthy for a bird that was hatchling year in 2006!  The other
re-confirmation was "Ms. Green" (L57723) who was banded last year as an
immature bird and described as having "no gorget", her gorget feathers are
now a very small central gorget.   

 

An adult male blackchin was caught (which I knew had a band), was confirmed
to be (L57725).  He is a bird banded last year in the yard as an immature
bird with just a single purple gorget feather.   Next is Orange Boy, a
spectacular adult male rufous, I also knew had a band.  He was confirmed as
(L57790), another bird banded as an immature last year in the yard.  The
transformation of these two birds into their adult plumage is nothing short
of spectacular.  

 

A surprise was a band on another female rufous bird, who I described only as
Ms. Pink's Twin, because of her large central gorget which is just slightly
more compact than Ms. Pink. This proved to be Ms. Purple, (L57722) who was
also banded as an immature bird last year.  Her gorget, described as looking
somewhat like a scorpion last year. has completely filled in to a triangular
central gorget.  

 

A female rubythroat eluded capture, but was confirmed.  

 

Eric,

The interesting part of this report for me is that all these birds are
protecting the same areas in year in the yard as previous years!  Thank you
Linda for all the help sorting these birds out!

Happy New Year, Humnetters,

Over all, hummer banding this winter season has been fairly slow 
compared to the previous two winters.  Catching has been a challenge and 
often not successful.  Am I losing the touch?

Now, with the Christmas season here, there are distractions and banding 
has had to be set aside for other matters.  However, last Monday, 23 
December, I finally managed to outsmart a multi-year Buff-bellied 
Hummingbird here at Casa Colibrí!  For those who have never had the 
pleasure [and vexation] of matching wits with these wily guys and gals, 
they are the Rhodes Scholars of the Trochilidae.  They learn your tricks 
and use them against you.

This gal was a youngster when I banded her in January 2008, making her 
current putative age as 6 1/2 years using the prescribed Bird Banding 
Laboratory formula for estimating age.  In 2008, she was recorded daily 
until 6 April.  Each fall, she has returned in October and has been 
observed almost daily until early April.

This year, I did not make a serious effort to catch her until the 
weather became cooler.  Although she is a 'feeder junkie', she will ply 
the flowers rather than enter what she perceives to be a trap. Last 
year, she only took day and a half to be lured in by an ever more 
distant feeder in a trap.  This time it was 3 days - and she only tried 
to slip in when sub Steve Locke drove away in my van. She seems to have 
thought she was going to get away with using the feeder in a trap if I 
was not there.  Next year, I may have to resort to disguises.

The old gal handled easily and the only sign of age she showed was a 
rectrix that was gray on one side.  Last year, I had noted that the band 
had faded badly, so I decided to change it even though it wasn't any 
worse than previously.

On Thursday, the day after Christmas, while participating on the 
Reserve-Bonnet Carré Spillway Christmas Bird Count, Steve and I found 
ourselves counting birds at one of our regular sites that is usually 
censused by another participant.  We usually like to band at this site 
before the CBC and again later in the winter because color-marked birds 
are more easily tallied than those that are not marked, but scheduling 
an early banding had not worked out.  It is a very large area with 22 
feeders.  Usually, we have a krewe of 3 or 4, but we had to make-do with 
help from the host, who did a lot of the catching.

As we were setting up traps, I asked him about the old-timer Buffy we'd 
caught there last year.  He said he had not seen or heard it. Capturing 
was not overly fast, but in about 3 hours, we managed to catch 13 
individuals.  First catch was an immature male Calliope Hummingbird.  
After that it was a blur of 9 Rufous Hummingbirds [including 4 adult 
males and 3 near identical adult females] with 2 Ruby-throated 
Hummingbirds thrown in.  More than half of the Rufous were returnees.

We were about to conclude the session when I noted a Buffy sneaking 
through the large azaleas behind a trap.  It did not enter, but we put a 
trap in a different location that was more difficult to see from our 
vantage points and he flew right in - and the host caught him.  Yep, he 
was the same oldtimer as last year - banded within a couple of weeks of 
my old gal.  Steve did the handling and he changed the faded band.  
There were no signs of age.  Wow, 2 7th season Buffies in less than a 
week!  What are the odds?

Seemed like the week couldn't get any better, but then, on Friday, 
during the St Tammany Christmas Bird Count, the first bird we snagged 
was wearing an unfamiliar band.  Steve recited the band number as he 
brought the bird in!  We found that this bird was the first foreign 
report the bander had received from the entire Southeast.  Well, this 
little guy was our first foreign re-encounter from West Texas and our 
first foreign re-encounter Rufous from anywhere in Texas!

This event occurred at our Covington [Louisiana] site.  Our 10 
hummingbird catches [or observations of previously banded birds] 
included 2 identical Ruby-throateds [immature females], 7 Rufous 
[including 4 adult males], and 1 immature male Calliope.

Louisiana birders,

Happy holidays and thanks for all the continuing hummingbird reports. Lots of 
reports have been submitted over the last couple weeks, so keep those feeders 
going. When reporting your hummingbirds, please provide 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. Please report the last observed (LO) date, if possible, when the 
bird leaves. This you can do more easily when the hummer has been banded and 
marked. 

Happy hummingbirding,
Erik Johnson
S Lafayette, LA

Hi everyone,

A visiting researcher and a few of his students from University of Southern 
Oklahoma, Chris Butler, would like to check out someone's Buff-bellied 
Hummingbird if they'd be willing to have him visit their yard in the next few 
days. Please contact Chris directly at cbutler AT uco.edu. 


Happy birding,
