SLB: So, that photograph of the hummingbird from your friend? I’m not so sure that it’s a Ruby-throated? I think it might be an Anna’s and probably Ohio (not PA) as they haven’t been reported there (says the internet).
Public or Private? Um, I can’t see it makes any difference to those already joined, so I vote for the majority.
Hotmail seems to be behaving itself again. Not sure what happened there? Hope it doesn’t revert again!
Jo: Certainly looks like a YRW to me. I love the Boreal Chickadee! I’d love to see one of those! I was lucky enough to see Chestnut-backed and Mountain Chickadees in California, though I didn’t know a ‘Mountain Chickadee’ even existed until I got back from my trip and looked at the pictures in more detail as I only had Eastern guide-books then.
