What a raggedy hummingbird! It looks like a young one.

A bit windblown
You caught him in the act!
Hummingbird migration is so close to us but none at our feeders yet.

I wondered if that were a hummingbird. It does look a bit raggedy. I photographed one scratching the other day, and noticed they stretch their neck in ways you never expect them to. It's wild. Great shots.

to all - sorry I haven't been keeping up. This little bird was resting on a branch and perfectly happy grooming herself. Couldn't care less about onlookers.
