Re: help help!!


This all happened as I was preparing to leave on an errand. My gues was possibly to young to fly and he toddled in through the cat door and didn't know how to get back out. I put him out where I expect he'd come in and put the cats in the house. I figured this would give mom a chance to find him. He's gone now. Everything about him seemin working order and nothing appeared broken or missing, that's why I thought he was either dazed or young. Hard to tell by size since they're so little anyway. So pretty, not often do I see them so still.

I'm hoping he'll be ok, that mom came and got him. Thanks Judy and Zem, for the suggestions.

Oh dear. Could he have broken something? too young to fly? I'd be trying to
find a wild bird rehabilitation/rescue. Will he take sugar water(1part
sugar/4 parts boiled water)? He's burning energy & those little guys need a
tremendous amount of nectar for body size.

I have a little hummingbird here and he cannot seem to fly.  I don't want
to let him go for fear one of the cats will get him.
He can use his wings but can't seem to get altitude. Could be he just hit
the screen of the Florida room and has caused him temporary difficulty.
But what do I do now?
He's on the counter under a screen-type collander.
