1 September 2017 – Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Late in the afternoon, OSU grad student Megan Roselli brought me this HY-male Ruby-throated Hummingbird in a cup.  She had just found it at the northeast alcove (where it wasn’t when I had checked this morning).

29 August 2017 – Ruby-throated Hummingbird

I missed this bird on my 30 August check but was lucky enough to meet the reason why: OSU grad student Aurora Manley found this HY male Ruby-throated Hummingbird on the 29th (sometime after my check) and took it in to nurse it back to health. Unfortunately, it did not survive.
