Bob found a hummingbird on the ground.
We think it may have flown into the ceiling fan on the porch. Big hearted as he is, he scooped it up and came to get me...no easy feat with his big paws!
We put it in an open box, and put one of the feeders in with it, along with a few oak branches to perch. It drank right away, and then sat on the branch looking at us. (The quarter is for size reference..my hubbys' idea.) I think it may have a broken, or damaged wing, because it tries to fly, but can't get much height.
We put the box inside the dogs kennel area, which has a roof, because we hoped if the bird got so it could fly, then it would be able to get through the chain link, as opposed to having it in the screen house, and having no way to get out! We were sure the cats would get it if we didn't protect it somehow!
Anyone know what we should do with it if it doesn't fly soon?
The dogs need their kennel tomorrow!
The things we get ourselves into!!
