December 15, 2011 Rufous Hummingbird update.

 Rufous Hummingbird still doing well.
The Rufous Hummingbird at Eganville was banded on Tuesday, December 13th. It is a hatch-year female, in good condition, with lots of body fat. The hummer was first observed back in late September coming to the feeder and as the weeks past, the Peterson's kept filling the hummingbird feeder. So with our mild November and start in December the Rufous has survived. Now the question is, will the hummer migrate or expire to the extreme cold. If you are interested in learning more about Ontario hummingbirds, definitely check out The Ontario Hummingbird Project website at .
