Hummingbirds are very small but they move around so fast that up to now I have not been able to see where they go after they fly away. The photo below shows how most of us see these birds.

However, yesterday I saw one fly to a nearby oak tree and perch on a branch.

To give you an idea how small it is, here’s a shot of a female House Finch at about the same distance.

Or, how about a Nuthatch and a Goldfinch for comparison?
