Baby Anna’s Hummingbird as photographed by Beth Petit

Beth and Jeff Petit had a juvenile Anna's Hummingbird show up at their feeder recently. While I'm still seeing male Anna's displaying for his ladylove and have seen signs of nest building, this youngster's parents obviously got an early start.

Richard Kuehn took a look at the photo for me and he wrote, "It is indeed a downy juvenile. There are multiple downy feathers on this young Anna's hummingbird likely hatched in early to mid-March, I'd guess."

And here's a fun photo from a while ago where an adult Anna's landed on Beth's head!

Thanks to Beth for allowing me to share her photo with you here.
