Tiniest skull! This is from an ADULT Anna’s hummingbird (Calypte anna). Those are my normal-sized (I think 😏) fingers holding it. Felt like I was holding paper! Crazy that such a tiny thing is so complex and vibrant (see second pic, not mine)! I was lucky enough to see a living one in Vancouver last August, and they really are stunning little birds 💕 still slogging away at this review of bird beaks, but nice sometimes to take a moment and think about the species in a non-scientific light 🤓 #ornithology #phdlife #hummingbird #skulls #museumlife #smithsonian @coe_palaeo @uct_biologicalsciences @africanornithology
