Tracey and tweeters,

On upper Scatter Ck. south of Olympia, we still have about 8 immature Rufous Hummers coming to several feeders in the yard. The numbers were easily twice that a week ago, and I expect they will dwindle to one or two by the first week of September. Have had Rufous visit as late as mid-September.

Good birding, Bob

I was in my dahlia patch early this morning and was surprised by a female rufous hummingbird floating just a few feet away. My husband noted that this bird had been visiting the brightly colored dahlias within the last couple of days. A little late for a hummer?

The black headed grosbeaks have been replaced by finches at the backyard feeder, with many teenage towhees coming in too.
