Today a female immature Black-chinned Hummingbird was identified at Farmington.  This is believed to be the first documentation of this species in Missouri.  Lanny Chambers of Fenton mist netted the bird, measured it, weighed it and released it.  The bird is at the home of Don and Jan Asher, 109 Hawthorne, Farmington.  Their phone number is 573 756-9139.  The Ashers are very cordial and are happy for birders to enter their property.  Visitors should walk around the garage (left side of the house) and view the feeder hanging over the back door.  In spite of the weather the bird has been coming to the feeder about every 20 minutes.
Driving directions: Coming south on US-67 take the first Farmington exit to the left.  Go to the fourth stoplight (North Washington Street) and turn right.  Drive south just past the courthouse to East Columbia Street.  Turn left for two blocks to a stop sign (South Henry Street) which is Hiway H.  Go south about a mile to Old Fredericktown Road which is to the left.  Hawthorne Street will shortly appear on your left.  The Ashers live in the 3rd house on the left.  If you have trouble finding the house call Bob Lewis at 573 756-5484.
Good birding.   Bob Lewis  [log in to unmask]
