Subject: [MASSBIRD] second Rufous Hummingbird

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.
