Black-chinned Hummingbird band return rates from Ingram, Kerr County, Texas.

BRENT ORTEGO, Texas Parks & Wildt. Dept., Victoria, TX, ARTIE RICHARD and HANNA RICHARD, Ingram, TX.

Black-chinned Hummingbirds were banded multiple times per week with "Bonnet," and cage traps during the months March through September from 1996 to 2002 within a subdivision at Ingram, Kerr Co., TX. The banding site is comprised of a trailer park with ¼-acre (0.1 ha) lots or smaller in park-like cedar/deciduous hardwood habitat and is ½ mi (0.8 km) from Johnson Creek and 2 mi (3.2 km} from the Guadalupe River. Initial date of banding was pooled for each month across 1996 through 2000. Black-chins were still captured and banded during 2001 and 2002, but the data was only used for tabulating recaptures. Thus, each banded bird in this report would have at least two yr after banding to be recaptured. Percent recapture rates were calculated for monthly age and sex in the table. First number is percent recaptured and second number is sample size. Site fidelity, survivorship and effects of migrants on the data set will be discussed.
