Rufous Hummingbird

Postby Russ Emmons » Tue Nov 08, 2011 3:16 am

A Rufous Hummingbird was seen, reported and photographed today (Nov.7) by Mark Wloch of South Gate MI
Allen Chartier, Michigans Hummingbird expert trapped the bird, banded it, and took precise measurements to confirm this bird. Jerry Jourdan and others photographed this bird. This is Wayne countys first ever record of a Rufous! Photos have been posted on Bruce Bowmans umich.edu Grove Street album plus Jerry Jourdans blog.
