Cascadia Hummingbird Report 03/04/2002

There were more RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRDS reported from southwestern
British Columbia this week. Willamette Valley reports show an
increased inland presence as well. There were also three arrival
reports from southeastern Arizona. The coastal arrival trend
for males so far, taking all current reports into account, averages
about 5 days ahead of schedule .

The first reports of female Rufous Hummingbirds from Waldport
(2/27/2002) and Coos Bay (3/2/2002) are pretty much on time.
Observers at these sites also report multiple males at feeders
and some territorial displays.
