Rescued Baby Hummingbird Fed in Hand by Mother


This is actually a pretty amazing story about a baby hummingbird that a man found on a sidewalk. It couldn't fly, so he took it under his wing.

At night, it would come home to his house for safety. During the day, it was in the backyard of the house near where he found him.
About 4 days after he found it, he was holding it in his cupped hands when its mama came by to feed it. She had seen the man around, I guess, because she just flew over, perched on his hand and then fed the fledgling. This happened a number of times, so he called a friend who is good with a video camera, and he came over to film some of the amazing goings on that he told him about.
