Allen's Hummingbird headed away

A note I wanted to share on my blog that I just got notified of via Va-Bird listserv.

The young female Allen's Hummingbird that I saw in early February and mentioned in one of my first posts has left or is leaving very soon.  Little Martha Gail (Martha Gail is her name) didn't act normal at the feeders this morning, MG's host Julie K. reported.  It's time for MG to go west and find a mate to raise a family.  Good luck and safe travels Martha Gail!
