    From VERMONT:
    We found that a penny, 9 small paper clips, 2 big and 1 small paper clips, 10 soda can tabs, 2 and a half playing cards, and 3/4 of a regular piece of copy paper - 8 by 10 inch in size - all are about 1/10 of an ounce.

    From ONTARIO
    Other things that weigh the same as a hummingbird (1/10 of an ounce) are ...pens, pencils, some kinds of rulers, a big eraser and a small note pad. The way I got this answer was, I weighed some things at home to see if I could come up with 1/10th of an ounce. It is not much weigh at all.
