Good morning, All. We had a hummingbird come into the yard this morning that did not act like our usual RTs. It seemed large, had a louder/buzzier sounding flight, and did not twitter at all, even when close to us. It seemed confused by the feeder--like he/she did not know what to do. It did nectar at several flowers. We thought it might just be a young RT, but it seemed larger. We occasionally have other species of hummers here. We could not see features/colors well enough to describe. 27 June 2020 Baldwin co. AL (coastal)
This bird was found outside our front door on it's side in the North West/Washington. I thought it was a king fisher, but all pictures I looked at are smaller and colorful. It has a longer black beak and black feathers tufted back on the top of the head and black to just above the eye. The cheeks neck and chest are a chestnut brown and the wings are black with black and brown shoulders, lighter markings outlining a group of feathers on the wings. Light color in a vertical line on the chest and around the start of the beak with some yellow right where the beak starts on the face. The feet are also larger and yellow. It's maybe 14 inches beak to tail.
