  1. Number observed: 1

    Details: This bird arrived 22 September. Nectar feeder was still up as I leave it for 2 weeks after my last sighting; previous sighting was 14 September. This is not an adult male, there are no subadult male gorget feathers, and I suspect it is an adult female. The white tip of the tail projects beyond the wingtips. The bird shows up to the feeder shortly after dawn when I put it out, comes and goes all day, and stays drinking nectar until dark. It is skittish and zips off anytime I get near the screen door window. It appears puffed up much of the time and the flight pattern is not as strong and direct as typical of an in season Ruby-throat.
