This morning I had an adult male hummingbird outside
my kitchen window.  It was facing me on the backside
of the feeder.  I only saw the face, neck and some gray
under the white band.  There was no sun (we've had rain 
most of the day).  I was unable to see the side or
back of the bird.

It was definitely a full adult.

I believe it was an archilochus species.

I've been away most of the day 
and have not had the opportunity to
sit in the kitchen since returning home.

I'll be in there watching before daybreak tomorrow
and hopefully he will be back.

Our son, visiting from the Atlanta area,  briefly saw a hummer
on Sunday morning.

Bob Sargent said there are probably
health issues involved 
if it is a Ruby-throated Hummingbird.
