help to id a hummer i can't find
I saw a hummer I could not ID from images on the web
bumble bee size 1 inch to 1.25 inch crown to tail tip
2/3 to 3/4 inch wide
1/2 inch beak
yellow throat (grot... sp.?)only accent color
light brown eyes to mid body where not yellow
dark brown mid body to tail tip
wings dark brown like tail
It was like it was wearing a shirt with dark sleeves and pants
I am in the upper peninsula of michigan near WI border
it is aug 13 2011
I tried to get a pic but is so small it looks like a dark dot in the purple flowers
no it was actually a hummingbird, not an insect even if it was bumble bee size
I was able to watch it for several minutes from less than 3 feet away.
Usually we have ruby throats sometimes we have irridescent green throats this is first ever that is sooooo small and soooo plain colored.
Thanks for help everyone.
