Hi all:
Tad Finnell did the count today, but I spent a little bit of time with him on 
the tower at the end of the day, and have posted about it on the Smith Point 
Hawk Watch blog (see signature).  Tad found the bird of the day shortly before 
he left at 4, a Selasphorus hummingbird.  I stuck around for a while after he 
left and managed to get some poor pix of the bird, and the bird seems to be an 
immature male Allen's.  However, it is missing half its tail and has a rufous 
feather in a place that seems wrong for Allen's.  I have posted four pix of the 
bird on the blog.

Enjoy,

Tony
