from an acquaintance in MD:

Rufous Hummingbirds are rare vagrants to our area. They seem to be coming more and more common, but suspect the increase is largely due to increase in feeders left up throughout the fall. They have shown up as late as the very end of December. Keep your feeder out! Never know!! Might even get one of the other Western Hummers!! These are just the Rufous records now in eBird (one was in Grantsville a few days ago):

1. I had a Rufus show up at my feeders in Delaware in November 2016

He stuck around for over two weeks. Perching in my dried hibiscus bush, and feeding often. I had to keep refilling feeders because they were freezing. He finally left around December 18. We all recall the November 2016, so I really needed this lift at that point. I have kept my feeders up through fall ever since Your post has reminded me to go put some fresh nectar in there. Thank you
