One Last Update

The little hummingbird, Jewel, is out of the nest. She did not fledge. Her wings were underdeveloped. She fell to the ground. She is not hurt, but is under a bush and her mother, Phoebe, is feeding her. Those watching her through the livecam will take her to rehab, where she will be cared for from here on out.

Awww! I'm glad the bird isn't hurt and there are others to help care for her. God bless them all.

How sad. It reminds me of the butterfly we reared in my reception class last year who's wing did not properly develop. It was awful.

I guess this little birdy was lucky to have had a live cam on her! That is pretty amazing.
