Late Rufous Hummingbird 11/16/2010


This Rufous Hummingbird made a brief appearance at my feeder this morning. Most Rufous Hummingbirds leave Oregon by September on their way to Mexico. This species is prone to wandering, however, with many individuals reported throughout the eastern U.S. in autumn, and increasing numbers wintering in the Southeast.

  1. I’ll be curious to see if he stays around very long.
