Hummingbird Watch In Jefferson County

August 27, 2012

I received a call from a friend who lives in the mountains above Bailey, Colorado.  He has seen a Magnificent Hummingbird at his hummingbird feeders off and on since last Friday (8/24/2012).

It is the second Magnificent Hummingbird that has visited his feeders this year.  The first one was back on 7/31.  The bird comes once or twice a day (8/24, 8/25, 8/26) to one of nine hummingbird feeders that Wilson has.

I arrived at around 9:30 am and stayed until dark around 7:30 pm.  We enjoyed the beautiful view and some good barbecue (recipes from PBS' barbecue university).

Finally, the female/juvenile Magnificent Hummingbird appeared for about 10 seconds at around 2:30 pm.  Wilson had seen at 7: 16 am.  Those were the only times it was seen today.
