Hummers Overwintering in PA (article)

spaceman13(6b)June 11, 2013

Here's a neat story From Feb 27th 2013 about Hummers (Not Ruby's) overwintering in PA!

Really cool article and a nice list of native and non native fall blooming plants to help the migrators and attract the overwinterers.

Dunno why there isn't a spot to enter links in an original message...Maybe I just overlooked it, as I'm getting old!

WOW! That is awesome! The calliope was spotted on my birthday too. I hope they'll come to western PA. I wonder how they find a patch of flowers in Winter.

I came across this story from May 8th PennLive (Patriot News ) website of a Bhama Woodstar hummer found and banded near Denver, PA (lancaster county)

Only the 3rd sighting in the continental US, EVER!
The other 2 sightings were in the southernmost tip of Florida in 1961 and 1981

Kind of makes you wonder if it wasn't inadvertently (or purposefully) brought back by Pennsylvanians overwintering in the south!
