Lancaster Co. -- Adult Female Rufous in Quarryville - a 3-peat hummer
FO Early August/17 ↔ LO ?
On Mon Aug 21st, Scott Weidensaul posted on PABirds that he caught and confirmed as a 3rd-yr returnee a banded adult female Rufous in Quarryville at the home of Doug & Terri Elvey. This hummer was first noticed as "different" in early August but not reported as a Selasphorus until August 14th. Scott believes that this is PA's 1st 3-yr returnee, and I concur!
The RUHU was still present as of Thurs Oct 12th as reported by Terri (email).
On Fri Oct 27th, Bob Schutsky posted on PABirds that he and his wife visited the Elveys and observed the RUHU.
