Violet Sabrewing

This is the largest hummingbird species visiting our feeders. The Violet Sabrewing was absent during the winter months but has appeared since around mid march. In the early morning this individual often enters the front door of the house and explores around often hovering over the red tassle of a pillow on the couch mistaking it for a red flower. One time he got disoriented and ended up lost in the kitchen flying against the window. I thought the condenser of the refrigerator was dying when I heard the rattle of his wings against the window. I picked him up and released him outside. Within a couple of minutes he was back on the feeder
