Cascadia Hummingbird Report - 3/25/2002

Most reports this week are from latitudes similar to those
reported last week. A report from Union Bay, BC is the northern
most so far and arrived on the same day last year. Other observers
in British Columbia report that arrivals to their feeders are
running a bit late, even though we began the season with record
setting early arrivals. The below normal temperatures have no
doubt contributed to this.

Waldport, OR reports at least 18 individuals coming to one yard
and reports of smaller concetrations have been reported from
Coos Bay and Astoria. Females are being reported at about equal
fequencies as males now.

My computer was down over much of the weekend, so I won't be
listing female reports, but they are in the database. There have
been enough reports of females this season that an analysis
comparing males to females may now be possible.
