You may recall from the July blog Hummingbird Hows that a newborn hummingbird weighs almost twice as much as its poor beleaguered mother. Note the size of the baby compared to momma.
"This is actually a pretty amazing story about a baby hummingbird that was found on a sidewalk. He couldn't fly, so I took him under my wing. At night, he would come home to our house for safety. During the day, he was in the backyard of the house near where I found him.
About 4 days after I found him, I was holding him in my cupped hands when his mama came by to feed him. She had seen me around, I guess, because she just flew over, perched on my hand and then fed him. This happened a number of times, so I called a friend who is good with a video camera, and he came over to film some of the amazing goings on that I told him about."
I hope this is enough info to give you some context for the video we posted to YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7xBLvMIBZU."
