    That is really amazing, I am so happy you were able to save that sweet baby. I love humming birds and have a feeder for them, We, in Oregon have one breed that stays year round, so I am sure to feed them in the Winter. I love watching them as does my cat. He is indoor only so not a threat to them. Sammy, this was so truly wonderful that you saved this poor little bird. That make my heart happy. A wonderful thing to do. Hope you are Blessed.

    Sammy, What an amazing, sweet story to share! GOD Bless you for your love and compassion for one of GOD’s tiny creatures!
    I, too, have an amazing sweet hummingbird story to share…it happened on the afternoon of 01 October of 2019, and I did shared the below with a dear friend after it happened to me.
    “Yesterday, as I was gazing out our Breakfast Room Bay Window, checking on two of our hummingbird feeders hanging on our patio, I saw that a very tiny Hummingbird was caught between railings on one of the feeder perches. I ran out and slowly took the tiny creature out of the entrapment – it was dying. Holding the tiny bird close to me, I gently took the tiny bird into my kitchen, got a small jar lid and put some Hummingbird Feed liquid in it. (I had just made up a large batch the night before as we do have many feeders out knowing that the Hummers were on their southward bound trips and we would have many temporary visitors on their way south. Anyhow, I held the tiny thing in my shaky hands and put it’s bill into the lid which freaked me out thinking the poor bird would not be able to fly should the syrup get all over its body feathers and wings. So, I took the bird to the kitchen sink and turned the faucet onto tepid, slow, gentle water stream and proceeded to bathe/wash the helpless little bird.Is then took a soft kleenix to dry it some and took it outside. I put it between flower pots I had sitting on a patio table so it could get good sunshine. I kept watch on the bird and after it had had a really nice sunning session, it took off into the large oak trees right by my patio. I was so thrilled and excited – I had hoped and prayed that I could help, but really didn’t think I could help it revive. When I originally found it, it was opening and closing it’s tiny long beak and I knew I must do something to try to help it. I asked GOD to please help me – and he heard me!! Probably sounds so trivial, but to me it was an exciting thrill that I could help something to come back to such an active life that Hummingbirds live.

    Sammy, you are an amazing, caring man! You did what you needed to do to care for helpless, immature Flit and cared for her and taught her until she had grown to the point of being able to be independent, then released her to your outdoor environment which included a food source for her. I can’t tell you how much I admire you! Wish you well in all things.
