Observation details

It first appeared at one of the feeders after 4:00 pm yesterday, October 5th. I didn't get good looks at it since it was very skittish and I assumed it was a Ruby-throated Hummingbird. I did notice that it had a bright white breast that seemed rather unusual for a RTHU. It was back again this morning after sustained 20 mph southwest winds and heavy rain overnight. Photos taken and sent to Michael O'Brien confirm the RUHU ID based on plumage and the wide tail retrices. Merlin Bird ID also confirms Rufous Hummingbird from all of the attached photos. Yard bird #155.
