This is my pointer finger. I’d say bigger than my thumb, and her eyes were closed. Apparently she wasn’t dead because she’s gone now...unless she has met some other misfortune!Talk about an interesting find. I originally thought a juvenile Black-Chinned Hummingbird... but the yellow and white is a mystery. Are you able to see her eyes? Is she larger or smaller than your thumb?
Yes, I should have mentioned I’m in central Iowa! Thank you for clarifying!I really don’t think so. Female ruby throated are mostly light green. I’ve never seen a male or female Ruby look like that. Also, I just saw the OP is in Iowa so I retract my Black-Chinned guess.
