Cody, adult male Broad-tails make a unique loud metallic trill as they fly. By chance did you notice anything of the sort when you took the picture?

Hey OBOL folks,

Christopher Hinkle alerted me to the fact that a photo that I posted and listed as a Rufous Hummingbird on May 27th at my feeder in Medford did not appear to be a Rufous Hummingbird - but actually a BROAD-TAILED HUMMINGBIRD. Unfortunately the feeder has been since taken down as the house is being painted, but I'm going to put it back up today in the off chance the hummingbird returns. I see only one record of Broad-tailed Hummingbird in Jackson County, so if there is any dissent about changing the ID of this hummingbird (now listed as hummingbird sp.) now is the opportunity.

eBird checklist:


My Kindest Personal Regards,
