HILTON POND http://www.hiltonpond.org/ Although we've banded 3,410 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in York SC and had many return in later years, it is VERY seldom anyone encounters one of our hummers elsewhere. Thus, we were ecstatic "This Week at Hilton Pond" when we got word of a ruby-throat found in far-off Alabama during this year's fall migration. For details, please view our photo essay for 15-21 November 2006 at http://www.hiltonpond.org/ThisWeek061115.html As always we include a tally of all birds banded and recaptured, plus observations about a rather old White-throated Sparrow and a local "mini-hurricane" that had positive effects on Hilton Pond. NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship Applications are now being accepted for the NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowships for the 2007/2008 academic year.
