This handsome male Rufous Hummingbird visited the Canton feeder of Julia and Michael McAdams from July 22 to July 26. Vagrant hummingbirds are most often discovered in the fall, usually females or hatch year birds, so a brilliant male in July was particularly exciting. Julia McAdams took the photograph above.
The August 22-23 Brookline Bird Club Extreme Pelagic was spectacularly successful. This White-tailed Tropicbird was one of four (!) spotted during the trip. Jeremiah Trimble took the photograph above.
