Yesterday, the Wee Little Miss and I were on our way out of Target, when we saw a little hummingbird on the sidewalk. He was attempting to fly, but couldn’t. It looked like he had run into the big window out front of the store and didn’t fare so well as a result.
Of course, the Wee Little Miss’ reaction was to immediately pick the poor little thing up and insist we do what we can to help it.
After some online research, The Hubbster quickly learned that it is illegal for anyone who is not a licensed wildlife rehabilitation specialist to have/care for a hummingbird here, so we did some digging and found the proper people to call.
We finally got in touch with a rehabilitator who knows about hummingbirds and took him to her. She is said to be so good with them that the National Zoo has had her care for some of their birds in the past.
