Snoring Hummingbird

(YouTube link)

Well, how did you expect a snoring hummingbird to sound? This female Amethyst-throated Sunangel (Heliangelus amethysticollis) at a research facility in Peru is sleeping inside a device that measures its oxygen use. The machine is probably not really all that loud, but the sound was cranked up so we could hear the snoring. -via The Daily What

The poor dear bird having to sleep in all that awful noise and horrible sterile man-made research device.... this isn't cute it's sad. Poor thing will probably be killed once the "experiment" is over. :(
