Sleeping Hummingbird Snores Just Like We Do (VIDEO)

Okay, so the little lady isn't technically snoring -- but she's still adorable.

Reddit users got an unexpected treat this weekend when a video of a sleeping hummingbird -- a female Amethyst-throated Sunangel to be exact -- spread like wildfire on the site's front page.

But bird-savvy users were quick to point out that the critter's sweet snores seemed pretty out of character for our feathered friends.

To clear up the confusion, uploader forrestertr7 explained on YouTube that the hummingbird was filmed during an ornithological experiment that involved measuring the birds' oxygen intake.

"And yes, I know its not actually snoring, it just kinda sounds like it," the uploader said.

And don't worry, forrestertr7 also assured users that no birds were harmed or stressed in any way during the experiment.
