Rufous Hummingbird In Georgia

On Jan. 2, 2010, I had the pleasure of watching Bob & Martha Sargent capture, document, band, & release a Rufous hummingbird that has been visiting my parents house on Lookout Mountain in north Georgia. The process from beginning to end took less than 45 minutes. We discovered that the Rufous is a juvenile male who is in remarkingly good condition considering the brutal cold we are having here in north Georgia. He is expected to migrate between now and Jan. 15th, OR he may not migrate at all, and he will be fine if he doesn't, so say the experts, Bob & Martha.
