there is an immature female RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRD being seen south of Jeff 
He got permission from the hosts to let birders come and see this bird.
The name of hosts and location is listed below.

As always, please respect the hosts' wishes: do NOT call or knock on door 
and be mindful of the parking situation. :-)

Lanny Chamber advises:
> At 4.2 grams, this Rufous could leave at any time. It's typical for  them

Half the fun of birding is sharing sightings with others. :-)

Good chasing,

P.S. ANY word on the RUFOUS h'bird in the Springfield area?
Banded to confirm ID? Gone or still here?
Just curious.
