Hummingbird House Pueblito
This pueblito is situated on a sandstone outcrop which overlooks a tributary of Rincon Largo. The site includes a four room masonry pueblito (Rooms 1-4) atop the outcrop with one circular structure (Room 5) located at the west of the outcrop (Towner 1997).
: Ceramics observed during tree-ring collection investigations included Dinetah Gray and Gobernador Polychrome (Towner 1997).
: Forty-four tree-ring samples have been collected from the pueblito. Eleven of the samples were duplicates. Wood species were dominated by pinyon with seven occurrences of Douglas-fir. Metal ax use was noted on 14 of the samples. The tree-ring dates indicate that the pueblito was constructed in 1745 (Towner 1997).
