This morning I visited a private home in Foxboro and banded a hatching-year female Rufous Hummingbird that had reportedly been present since early October. This is the second 'western' hummingbird that I have encountered in our state this year. Details will be reported to the state records committee.
Another reminder about leaving our (freshly-cleaned) hummingbird feeders out after our regulars have left. I leave mine out well into November.
I need to emphasize that the location is unfortunately not appropriate for visitors.
Thanks to Vin Zollo for letting me know about this bird.
