Costa's Hummingbird Hen Preening

Costa’s Hummingbird Hen Preening

Quotation MarksWatching birds preen, like watching fish glide through an aquarium, is one of the most mesmerizing and calming displays. This little beauty (Calypte costae) is performing her noontide ablution after multiple luncheon feedings of her doublets, which I found totally mesmerizing. Such beauty and precision in her aligning of her glittering pennae. The hues in her surroundings are almost as stunning as is she!
