At 2:45 p.m today birdwatcher and writer Bob Paxton reported [via e-Birds] that the Rufous Hummingbird was present and accounted for at its usual location at the American Museum of Natural History.

The photo above, taken by DAVID SPEISER on December 15, 2011, visually explains the species' name.

PS Our other star bird, the Yellow-breasted

Chat, is still hanging out near the Gandhi statue

in Union Square Park today.
