Subject: [LABIRD-L] 1st Western and Winter Hummingbird Report
HUMNET and LABIRD,

I'm please to share the 1st 2019-2020 report on western/winter hummingbirds found so far in Louisiana. Please continue to report your observations, providing 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

- Any photos that may help support ID/age/sex

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.

Note that I do not accept reports of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds until after November 15, which is when we start to consider them as wintering.

Happy hummingbirding!
