Passing along the report below.
Beacon Falls, CT
My husband and I have a hummingbird feeder in our backyard and fill it with a recommended water and sugar mixture. This has been more successful than a commercial mix used in the past couple of years.
We are delighted to see a new species and have recognized as a RUFOUS. I went to another site that listed what hummingbirds are in our state of Connecticut and was surprised to learn that seeing a rufous is RARE. We discounted it being a ruby-throatred.
It has returned a few times and we just wanted to share that as one map we saw indicated that none were seen.
We live in Canton, CT.
