being from the US I am amazed by all of the "Micro" birds on here. I get to do a handfull of raptors for the state each year and a couple of vultures but haven't had the opportunity to work on anything small, would love to though. The birds here just keep getting better. Mark

I honestly don't think I can say I have ever seen a conventionally mounted hummer look this nice.

KUDOS!

very nice Igor. I know how it is to mount small ones like goldcrests, but a hummingbird is even smaller, my compliments!

Igor, beautiful Hummingbird. You must have hands like my 14 month old baby girl's hands. I found a male Ruby-throated trapped in the rafters of my inlaws garage many years ago. It was mid fall and the bird was one of the last to leave northern MN. Well, it was night time and the bird was nearly frozen to death. I got it to perch on my finger but it would not open it's eyes. We brought it inside and finally got it revived and my wife had mixed up some feeder juice while it sat on me. We let it drink a little at a time for a half hour or so and brought it outside to fly south. I hope it made it. Anyway, as I watched it, I tried to figure out how to work on something that small. It was definitely more intimidating than the peacock now in the freezer. I love to see all these little birdies in "Bird of the Week".
