I.. Today I was at my parents place. I just got out of the door to put my backpack and stuff in the car and I walk out. Something flops down landing in the shadow of the stairs. I got and look and its a hummingbird. its wings splayed out a little and it just sitting there. I go down immediately to pick it up, since it wasn't moving away. I knew it was hurt.
I gently picked him up, giving him a closer look..his bottom beak was in a way it looked like he broke his lower jaw as if he smashed it or somethign crushed it. He looked young..he only had about 3-5 colored feathers on his chest. I cupped my hand around him gently to bring him into the house to see if my mom the nurse could give me something really quick to help hold him.
i moved one of my hand and .. he flys out of my hand away from me to some where. I stood there stunned then tried to look for him.. i couldnt' find him.
I wish i held him tighter.. I really wished iI did.. I feel so bad.. I know
I know.. its not my fault, or i couldn't do anything, and if he was strong enoguh to fly he can make it.. its just.. you know I could've helped him. And knowing that just.. ahh.. I'm sorry little one..
