Subject: [LABIRD-L] LA Western Winter Hummingbird Report #2
HUMNETters and LABIRDers:
Western hummingbird reports have been slowly trickling in over the last several weeks. Ruby-throated numbers will drop over the next months, so it will be easier to pick out something different as more western hummingbirds arrive. Please continue to report newly arrived birds, and if you have photo evidence that will help confirm the ID, age, and sex.
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,
Erik Johnson
