[Tweeters] Odd-looking Anna's

Hi Tweeters,

The sun came out and for the first time in several days I
have some bird activity in my back yard. I took a few pictures of an Anna's
Hummingbird that was sunning itself. Then, when I looked at the pictures,
the bird looks quite odd. It looks like its outer row of feathers is
growing out from its little face at a funny angle. These feathers are all
gray, giving the bird a weird aspect. Is this just molting going on here?
Will this bird be handsome by next month?


I'd be interested to hear comments from those of you more
knowledgeable than I. Charlotte Byers, Edmonds
