Ruby-throated hummingbird (female)

Archilochus colubris


Bird looked like it was ill and/or nearly dead. She was found sitting on the back of lawn furniture on my back patio. I was able to handle her and placed her on a branch in the tree area behind my house.

She wasn't there when I went back later, so I'm hoping for the best, that she recovered and flew away! :)
