Anna's Hummingbird

Calypte anna


This sweet bird flew in our window and couldn't get out. I gently caught it and couldn't tell I was even holding anything. The bird is amazingly light, weighing maybe 10 grams. I brought it outside and opened my hand. It didn't fly away so I pulled out my phone and snapped a couple pics. It finally flew away just fine and even scolded me :)


In the house and backyard.
