I found this feather in my yard. Smallest I’ve ever seen. Is it a hummingbird? I have Anna’s and Rufous at my feeders.

Not a Hummingbird... their feathers are even smaller. I’m thinking a quail feather? It’s pretty nondescript though. It could be a Eurasian Collared Dove as well.

Okay... looking closer I all of a sudden realized that’s not a quarter haha! Still, Hummingbird feathers are very fragile and see-through, and almost veiny.
