God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages. ~Jacques Deval
On our weekly goat walk yesterday in the lower Arroyo Seco (under the Colorado Street Bridge) I spotted this little fella/gal on the ground in a bunch of leaves. It was nearing dusk, we couldn’t find the nest and we couldn’t leave it out there all alone on the trail so we bought the wee one home.
Late last night, Jordanne has contacted some hummingbird rescue people do see how to properly care and feed this baby. Till we hear otherwise, we’ve been feeding it Nutri Drench and powdered puppy formula for protein.
As of this morning, it’s still alive, eating, preening and occasionally calling for its mommy. We”ve rescued a lot of wildlife in our days, but this is the first hummingbird!
