This female Ruby Throated Hummingbird afforded me several interesting poses while she realigned her feathers with various stretches. I can’t say that I heard any knuckle cracking type sounds but I wouldn’t be surprised if she did ’-)
Shot in our garden in the yard not far from a patch of Beebalm that she loved to feed from. Ottawa Ontario Canada.
