There’s been an unusual sighting of a Rufous Hummingbird in Saratoga County, just north of me. The homeowner is welcoming birders (with advance notice, of course) and she’s been seen and photographed repeatedly in the last week. I just hope she packs up and leaves while this warm weather lasts!
No, I won’t be going to see her. I just feel too awkward about calling a random stranger and asking to hang around in his house for an hour or so until a bird shows up. Maybe someday I’ll make that dream trip to Texas and add a dozen hummingbirds to my list.
