Donna Foyle of Brentwood, PA recently spotted and photographed a hummingbird in her yard. Late this afternoon, Bob Mulvihill caught and banded the bird, an immature male. My boys and I joined several other local birders in seeing this lovely bird at Donna's home.
Donna has no problem with visitors, and no prior notice is necessary to come see the bird. She does ask that birders be mindful of the neighbors (don't block someone's driveway, walk in neighbors' yards, etc.). Bob suggests standing some distance from the hummingbird feeder (it's only about 15' from the sidewalk) so as not to scare the bird. It is easily visible from the sidewalk.
I have entered the following stakeout in eBird, and we ask that you please use it to avoid lots of pins for this location.
