I failed this Hummingbird twice today. First by making little to no progress getting the windows fixed in the office park. Second, by not saving it quick enough.
I found it at the beginning of my survey. I stupidly finished my survey and rushed to my office across the street to grab a shoebox for it to recover in.
About 10 minutes passed between the time I found it (top picture), to what I came back to find (bottom picture). In that relatively short amount of time, something killed it and took it away. All that was left were a few feathers. It must have had some fight left in it.
#151. Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Bldg. 11C).
