Carbon Co. -- Possible Black-chinned in Beltsville State Park
(not banded) -- OBS 5/7/00


A possible Black-chin was observed by Dave Hawk and another experienced birder in Beltsville SP. DH had previous experience with observing BCHUs in the western US, and he and his friend were both positive they saw purple/violet at the base of the hummer's gorget. A camera was retrieved and pix were taken, but they could not be sure they were photographing the same hummer. (PA Birds Vol 14 No 2 pg 116-7)

A possible imm male Rufous Hummingbird was seen visiting a feeder at the home of Lorraine and Mark Anderson in the Pocono Mtns. area.
Comments from the host about visitors: "You mean there'd be people here visiting during the day when we're not home? Just to look at a hummingbird???!!! And this comment was accompanied by a look of utter disbelief and consternation.
One interesting observation was that this bird was seen feeding on suet by John Serrao on an unspecified date.
There is a photo of this bird on a feeder taken by Brian Hardiman on pg 231 of Pennsylvania Birds Vol 14 No 4.
