Today I saw a hummingbird take its first flight!!! (was like a diagonal line to the ground) It is now safe on the ground with its mum nearby. (felt like saying mum) Spoke with a wildlife center, sent them pics & they said it’s a female fledgling *learning to fly*!!! & that it will be grounded for the next couple days & fed by its parents until it learns! I put up some big leaves to hide it earlier. Just went outside to check on it, and it’s still sitting there like a tiny angel. What comforts me is that I could hear the chirp of its parents in the trees. !
(Ok, I also put hummingbird nectar out for it originally (this is before I called the wildlife center). Hey, I was worried about the precious little thing! Was a hot one in the valley today! I’m familiar with the bird call of a hummingbird, so I know its parents are there now. Phew!! Will post pics tomorrow!)
