Subject: [LABIRD-L] Louisiana Western Wintering Hummingbird Report #2
HUMNETters and LABIRDers:

Western hummingbirds have been tricking into Louisiana over the last few weeks. As Ruby-throats dwindle over the next few weeks, the western hummingbirds will continue to arrive, so keep those feeders active!

If you have a western hummingbird observation, 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, please report those updates and I'll make the changes.

Also, 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!
