I just banded (14 April) the first female Ruby-throated Hummingbird
of the season at Hilton Pond Center for Piedmont Natural History near
She was captured in one of the 30mm mist nets I've been running to
capture spring migrant songbirds. She tied the fourth earliest date
for a local female RTHU (earlier dates: 4/8, 4/12, 4/13).
Since 5 April I've also trapped and banded four male RTHUs--off to a
good start and still at 226% of the average total for both sexes
combined as of this date.
Happy Hummingbird Watching!
