Bob Ferguson's blog entry about seeing the Siefkens' RUHU.
Scott Weidensaul posted on PABirds on Thursday Oct 15th on behalf of Sandy Lockerman that she had banded an adult female Rufous in Adams Co. at the home of Ralph and Deb Siefken. The bird was first seen on Oct 3rd (Priv Message DS). On Mon Oct 19th, Bill Oyler posted a forwarded email from Deb Siefken which stated that although their address is Orrtanna, they live in Buchanan Valley.
Deb Siefken informed me that the Rufous continues through Saturday Jan. 16th 2016! And they have a new enclosed heated 'feederhouse' to shelter the RUHU. Pix on Facebook Hums Anon and Winter Hums groups. The final update is that the Siefkens left on vacation on Jan 20th, and Deb saw the RUHU that morning, and it was seen again later that day by Bob Oyler, but not again.(eml DS)
