Flying and Hitting the House - Critter 74

Saturday, May 11, 2024
It was reported in the weather channel that the birds all quit singing, and it got very quiet outdoors before one of the destructive tornados touched down close by our areas.

Before rain and very strong wind, we just sitting outside in the morning, we hear a thump on our roof!

Then we saw something hit the grass. Here is what we found, a little hummingbird. We believed it must have been one of its first solo flights.

Being at the right place at the right time, we picked and handled the hummingbird. It didn’t make any noise.

We put it in this container, and then put under a plant. Luckily, after about 45 minutes later it flew off! Hopefully, it will survive in the nature.

When can you expect the humming season in your areas?

  9. Wow, close call for the little hummingbird! Glad you could help it and that it flew away. There are no hummingbirds in India. Instead, India has beautiful sunbirds that fill a similar ecological niche.

  12. I'm glad to hear it flew away after a rest. We saw several hummers this week on the trumpet flowers that were in bloom.
