Juvenile Anna's Hummingbird

This juvenile hummingbird showed up at our juice feeder on Thursday afternoon with its mother. While the mother drank it sat there with beak straight in the air wanting to be fed like I’m sure it has been use to at the nest.  In the end the mother flew off and the disgruntled juvenile remained as shown here, unable to figure out how to feed out of the metal flower.  It spent some time puzzled at its reflection on the juice feeder glass and when leaving flew over to our window where I’m sure it saw its reflection for a second time. A complicated new world for the poor thing. I think the nest is possibly in our rhododendron bush, but I haven’t been able to find it.
