I Broke The Law

"Collecting" the hummingbird feathers is against the law.  One passed in 1918.  I checked the list.. All the HB's I have seen here in WA, the Allen's or Anna's, and for sure the Rufous, are all on the list.  So I will take them back outside.  Any future findings, I will still photograph, but return to the great outdoors.
