Other things that weigh 1/10th of an ounce are 2 Tissues, and a piece of

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.

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.
