Hummingbird in Need of Help

This little girl was in rough shape when I found her. All ruffled and fluffed and exhausted.

I brought her inside and warmed her up under a desk lamp. I fed her sugar water from a dropper.

While caring for her she laid an egg. I'd never seen a hummingbird egg before. In about an hour she was feeling good enough to fly away.

Sadly I didn't think I had the talent to hatch the egg...but now I am wishing I had tried. it was a very special experience. Kathy Crow
