Subject:      Buff-bellied Hummingbird in SW Georgia
Content-type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8

A Buff-bellied Hummingbird visiting a feeder near Pavo, GA for a period of 4 or 5 days was well described and photographed. It was last seen and photographed by the observer (and homeowner) yesterday morning. Betty Derrick looked for the bird yesterday afternoon, and Betty, Barbara Passmore and I spent a couple of hours this morning, to no avail. It has apparently moved on, but we'll advise if it should return. One of many photographs taken by the homeownder can be seen here:

After documentation, this should represent the 11th species of hummingbird recorded in Georgia. It was certainly the one to expect next. At least two Buff-bellieds spent the winter in Tallahassee this year, which is about 35 miles away.
