Cascadia Hummingbird Report 03/18/2002

More snow this weekend, though mostly just a light dusting, but
we're up to 85 reports and running out of room on some parts
of the map.

The story of the week is the RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRD that accidentally
got into Ms Katie Wright's 6th grade classroom at El Sereno Middle
School in Los Angeles. After unsuccessfully trying to coax it back
out through the window, they had to resort to carefully catching it
with a butterfly net. The students got a chance to see a hummingbird
in-hand and up close before releasing it outside.

An ANNA'S HUMMINGBIRD was reported on a nest in Ephrata, WA. This
may well be the first nesting record for Anna's Hummingbird in
Eastern Washington. Anna's Hummingbirds are winter nesters, but
given the recent weather this is pretty amazing.
