Western Hummingbirds That Winter in the Southeast: OAS monthly program

Our speaker, expert hummingbird bander Fred Dietrich, has dispelled the long-thought-to-be-true fallacy that the Ruby-throated Hummingbird was the only hummingbird in the eastern U.S. Fred reported banding a Rufous Hummingbird in Tallahassee that was recaptured in Alaska in June 2010, the longest documented migration route of any hummingbird species. This year, Fred will update his bird-banding story and include photos of the only Costa’s Hummingbird recorded in Florida (and only the second record of it in the east) and two Broad-billed hummers in Tallahassee in 2012.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
