Baby Hummingbird Rescued After Attack
This video of a baby hummingbird rescued after attack (it doesn’t say what attacked it), is a little older but always worth seeing again and again.
The video is perfectly accompanied by the song, “Better Together”, by Jack Johnson.
UPDATE: The young man in the video says that when the hummingbird thought she was ready to leave (and she was) she flew off to her favorite patch of the back yard, and her instincts instantly kicked in, and now she’s just like all the other hummingbirds.
He says that for those that are concerned that she was imprinted on humans and wouldn’t survive in the wild, don’t worry, she is thriving. She has even successfully migrated and returned back to his yard. The young man assured us, saying:
“I did NOT feed her plain sugar water. I went outside 3 times a day and caught flies from my compost bin (be green people) in big bags, crushed them, and mixed them in as well. I also helped her learn to catch flies while flying (not in the video because the flies were too small). It was a pretty hectic but very rewarding experience and, in the end, i don’t think it could have worked out any better.” 🙂
Personally, I’m very happy for the young man AND the bird. Without him, the bird may not have survived. Without the hummingbird, he wouldn’t have this lovely story to tell.
