We typically have a few immature Rufous Hummingbirds in our yard and gardens 
through the end of August.  As of yesterday, there were still about a half 
dozen around.  My latest sighting in 2004 was Sept. 16, of a presumed 
migrant that came through about a week after the last regulars.  The very 
late summer visitors come most likely after sunset.  I have still not seen 
an Anna's Hummingbird in nearly four years here along upper Scatter Ck.
