Subject: [va-bird] Buff-bellied Hummingbird
Posting this on behalf of Matt Anthony, who is having some trouble posting:
The Buff-bellied Hummingbird was showing nicely today. I spoke with Margie
today, and she would like to clarify some of the access protocols. She is
still happy to host anyone who wants to see the bird. However, the bird has
proven to be skittish and not tolerant of large groups. She would like to
limit visitors to 2-3 at a time, and limit visits to about an hour slot.
Please continue to contact her using the phone number provided to schedule
a visit. If you come and do not see the bird, she is happy to schedule
another visit. Please text her when you arrive and DO NOT let yourself into
the backyard without checking in. The bird visits the feeder, and also
perches in some of the shrubs along the back edge of the yard. If you use
the house as a blind, it is possible to get good views without encroaching
on the bird. An eBird hotspot has been set up at an inexact location.
Please use this and DO NOT post her address.
