possible Broad-tailed Hummingbird
Aug 27, 2002


This hummingbird was found Aug 27, 2002 in Davis, CA. Some experienced birders who saw the bird declared it was a "no-brainer" Broad-tailed. Others, including some very prominent birders, saw photos that to them suggested Rufous Hummingbird. Here I have re-scanned some the original prints from film taken by Roger Adamson.
