[cayugabirds-l] hummers

2015-10-01 Thread Marty Schlabach
I just saw two hummingbirds at our feeder in Interlaken. We haven't seen a hummer at our feeders since Sept 13. These both look like female or young male ruby throated hummingbirds to me, but then I've been wrong before! 3 years ago we had a rufous hummingbird visit us for several weeks.

Hi all, As Marty suggested,any "hummer" this late in the season is worthy of scrutiny. Over the next few months, vagrant species, most often Rufous Hummingbird, are almost as likely as lingering Ruby-throated. Please keep that in mind if you have any hummingbird sightings from now on, and post to

Highlights from birding this morning at Myers Point and Hog Hole were two LONG-BILLED DOWITCHERS flying north past Myers and a flock of 339 BRANT headed south over the south end of the lake. No Nelson's Sparrows or interesting ducks so far. Two individual BRANT also came in off the lake to head

I, too, had a hummer this morning, after a long time with no sighting. Oddly, it flew with very direct line from plants with flowers in the front lawn to flowers that were out of line of sight in the backyard making me wonder if it was the return of a summer resident. Don't know. Interesting.

Hmm. I had just been wondering whether I should still be bothering with hummingbird feeders. I guess I will keep bothering a little while longer and try to get good looks at any bird who visits them! Melanie On 10/1/2015 1:11 PM, Jay McGowan wrote: > Hi all, > As Marty suggested,any "hummer"
