small green bird

Recommended Posts

I do not have a picture - it was too fleeting. The bird was a light green (I think) and small  but about twice the size of the hummingbirds we get.  But it seemed to hover like a hummiingbird for a few seconds before flying away.  I am in Baltimore County Maryland and saw this in my backyard yesterday July 10th.  I have not seen anything like this before and as I said it was only fleeting. I do not have any other details so just hoping....

Well the first thing I'd say is that the lighting can make birds appear green, especially if you have lots of large deciduous trees around. Flycatchers get this a lot and that would explain the hovering for a moment (stopping to look at a bug perhaps). Otherwise I'd say it was probably a hummingbird just at a weird angle.
