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.
