See below.

KEEP THOSE FEEDERS UP!! Make no mistake, these western hummers are very cold hardy. Several years ago I banded a November Rufous Hummer in Lemont that, on her last day seen the following January, it was -9 F. with a wind chill of -30 -35 F.

This bird currently holds the low temperature tolerance record for a Rufous Hummingbird!

Hi everyone,

Just a reminder that now that it is November, if you observe a hummingbird
at your feeders please contact one of us and we will make arrangements with
you to come out to catch, band and identify it. Yesterday I was in NE PA
and although one would not go in the trap, I did manage to catch two rufous
hummingbirds that were only 1.5 miles apart. Today, I was able to catch and
identify another rufous in southeast PA.
