Hi, all:

I have about 8-9 hummers left here between Reardan and Spokane. A mixed
bunch of rufuous and black-chinned. No adult males left, of course. I
have at least 3 female black-chinned but at this point I can't tell if
any are juvies or or not. With the rufuous it's easier, at least for the
juvie males. I have 2 males that are about halfway through their plumage
change. The other 3 or 4 (it's hard to tell with all that zipping about)
rufuous are females but, again, I can't be sure who's an adult and who's
not. Usually I have them until the beginning of Sept - about the time I
start worrying that they're staying too long, they leave.

Regards, Joanne
