Hummingbirds on the Move

On Saturday, I spent a couple of hours birding the Altona Marsh in Jefferson County, West Virginia. The highlight was a tally of 14 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, my highest 1-day count ever away from feeders (and who knows how many I missed?). I also had an out-of-place Ovenbird and several Common Yellowthroats in a soybean field, as well as several flocks of American Robins (total of 47 birds). Things are definitely on the move!
