Jim - Not so far as I've read. But considering how difficult it is to find ANY hummers nest I'm not surprised! Below is the URL for the Bird Study Group and what they have to say on the subject: http://www.hummingbirdsplus.org/rufous.html They think it's likely. Linda From: "Jim McKenney" Subject: Re: [pbs] hummers Linda, are there any reports of breeding rufous hummingbirds in the east? Or for that matter, are there reports of any species other than the ruby-throated hummingbird breeding on the east coast?
