This is “Pebbles”, a young (juvenile) female Anna’s hummingbird. Have you ever seen a hummingbird take a bath, much less on the ground? This one did, flying up and down in the spray of a leaking hose before settling on the ground. No need for fancy hummingbird fountains here! I was fortunate enough to be able to sneak around and use the hybrid fruit tree as a bird blind and photograph her from just a few feet away. She’s using a pebble to prop herself up — because their tiny feet are set so far back, hummingbirds would fall over otherwise without any support. If you’ve ever had the privilege of holding a hummingbird in the palm of your hand, you’ll see that they lie on their bellies.
