Neighbor called today inquiring about orange throated hummingbirds.  Did some research and discovered a Sibley posted about a July 11 observation in CT - which he concluded was an early molt and it noted that there were no reports of earlier occurrences of orange males.

The bird was present throughout the morning and in the early pm I caught a glimpse of this orange throated hummer on arrival.  Camped out in the garden with camera but never saw the bird again.  Asked neighbor to call if the bird is seen again.

Ron, Ashford.
