Subject: [LABIRD-L] another late 'winter' hummer


I had a pretty pleasant surprise today when I saw (and photographed) the
Buff Bellied Hummer that we banded back in late February.

I have not seen it for at least 6 weeks and voila it showed up today.

I could clearly see the band and remnants of the paint mark on its head.



Where in the world has that little emerald been! Clearly it knew exactly
where to come back and get a free meal. The competing Ruby-Throats pretty
much left it alone.
