    What an elegant photo! I love these pugnacious little birds, and, yes, now that, you mention it, how IS a hummingbird weighed?

    He really does, what cool timing on that photo, yes will be waiting upon this answer of how a hummingbird is not only weighed but what type of scale do they use hmmm?

    There are probably other weighs to weigh a hummingbird but it took me awhile to even find this article. They use a Sartorius balance scale. There is a picture.
