Safely Enveloped: Hummer Rescue

Don’t miss this…

The Beauty Along the Road

We love to watch the hummingbirds feeding on our porch. The cats watch them, too, but pretend to not be interested as they know the hummers are much too fast for them ….except when they fly into a window and are knocked unconscious momentarily. After the telltale thump against the window, we quickly ran outside, saw the tiny bird on the deck and chased the cats away. My husband picked him up gently and held him in his hands. It was a male ruby-throated hummingbird recognizable by the bright red throat coloring.

The cats feigned disinterest but kept watching.

As he protectively held the tiny bird in his hands, the little one rallied a bit

Soon, he looked alert and was in control of his body again

In the next moment, he was gone:

    We’ve had a beautiful hummingbird hit the patio door and die. Our daughter, so tenderly touched she couldn’t bare to have it buried – so it ended up triple wrapped and put in the freezer. somehow it gave her comfort.(long ago disposed of) Another time, while hiking with her father they rescued a bird. We took it to the wild life rescue center, it lived. They invited us to visit and allow her because of her tender concern and interest in animals to re-release the bird. They told us they have never allowed a re-lease from someone outside of the facility care givers. Other birds we have taken their have not lived.
