Thanks to Carl, I saw the hummingbird in his yard briefly today. It appears to be a female rufous, likely an adult. I saw the bird twice in the first 45 minutes I was there and not after. Adding to his list , I had Siskin, Black-and-White Warbler, Blackpoll Warbler, Myrtle Warbler, Golden-crowned Kinglets, and Carolina Wren.

10/2, Ellington, The hummer made a few visits to my feeder between 0700 and 0900 at which time
I left for a couple of hours. From the pictures I got I'm leaning towards rufous. Mark Szantyr was here and
hopefuly he will have some more difinitive photos.
Also in back yard, RB NUTHATCH, BLUE-HEADED VIREO and PURPLE FINCH.
