Hummingbird, Other Observations
Sightings report image

Number: 1

The hummingbird with the neck problem concerned me on August 6. He sat on the ground long enough for me to run into another room and get my camera. The bird did fly away after I ran into another room, got my camera, and took several photos.

A lot of birds dust their feather in that spot on the ground. I have not seen him since but it concerned me that he stayed for almost 5 minutes.

The hummingbird with the bad neck may have Wry’s neck, because it looks like it's permanently looking upwards, Typically this condition is caused by a genetic disorder, a vitamin deficiency, a head injury, or from ingesting toxins.
