Rufous Hummingbird in Franklin County
At the end of September all of the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds have migrated through except for a rare late traveler. We leave the feeders up hoping to get a rare species to stop by. One did show up in the middle of the state and I was off to see it. Lanny Chambers also came to band and document it.
The Rufous Hummingbird is my 309th "Bird Species Photographed in Missouri".
