Ruby-throated Hummingbird spring arrival at Fort Morgan, AL, banding station.

BOB SARGENT, Trussville, AL.

Arrival under "fallout conditions," apparent accompanying species in fallouts, nighttime arrival of hummingbirds, body mass variations of arriving hummingbirds and related weather conditions, lack of floral nectar available to inbound Ruby- throated, molt conditions noted upon arrival, ageing some SY hummers on arrival as late as mid-April, absence of diseased and injured birds in arriving populations, and dispersal of inbound Ruby-throated from Fort Morgan to other locations northeastward will be discussed.
