This morning my eyes caught a small Anna's hummingbird sitting in the plum tree and enjoying the day! When I got my camera going, I noticed a strange film covering its neck and top of head.
While I'm not 100% positive, I think this is spider web residue. I have seen this before on hummingbirds and I'm guessing that they go after small spiders for snacks and in the process get webs stuck on them!!!
If you have any other thoughts, please send me a note or post here. Happy Thursday... Terry :)
