Hummingbird rescued ....



Last night as the sun was going down, we heard this chirping noise in the garage. We noticed a hummingbird was stuck in the garage. We have had so many hummingbirds this year already and this is seems to be a daily occurance. They fly into the garage and cannot figure out how to fly out.We take down our hummingbird feeder and hang it off one of the garage doors then they see that, fly down to it and fly out. Well this one must've gotten too tired as he was just laying on the ground flopping all around. Of course, I ran in and got my camera to take photos. Charlie picked him up and nursed him back to health. After the turkeys being stuck and the hummingbird being stuck, Charlie's comment for the day was "Farm life is not for me!" I just laughed out loud. So here are 2 photos of the ruby throated hummingbird we rescued.

So are you now "Thacker's Rescue Farm" LOL. Glad you saved the little guy. Christopher is always rescuing something here. Yesterday a baby cardinal flew into the bay window and when we went outside to see him he was just laying there not even moving. I guess he was just stunned because as we got closer and tried to pick him up he started to wiggle. Christopher got him to stand on a stick then he finally flew away. Dumb birds HAHA.
