Are you questioning whether it’s an Anna’s? Your description matches the Anna’s we have here in Seahurst (Burien,WA). They definitely ‘hum’ when they fly by. Broad-Tailed hummingbirds make a stronger, metallic ‘whirr’ and look like a larger Anna’s with a white breast and green crown, but they typically stay in the Nevada-Utah-Colorado-Arizona-New Mexico region.

Makes us think of the sound of cards clattering against the spokes of a bicycle wheel when we were kids. It is a dark emerald colored (though part of its back seems almost black), short beak and tail. We live in Port Orchard. Thoughts? Thanks – Jim and Rae Hight
