RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRD: Still present in the Conservatory Garden @10:15am. Seen feeding on salvia and sunflower blossoms in the NW corner of the North Garden (the garden with the circular flower bed and dancing maidens sculpture in the center). Enter the park at 5th ave & 106th; the garden is to your left. The general consensus is that this is a Rufous hummer (female or immature), from those who got a good look at the tail spread.
Thanks to Nadir Souirgi who first reported the bird on Oct 31st; I believe it's been seen every day since then ( tho not reported to the state list).
