Baby Hummingbird Story by Peter Tommerup, Saratoga CA

This is actually a pretty amazing story about a baby hummingbird that I found on a sidewalk. He couldn’t fly, so I took him under my wing. At night, he would come home to our house for safety. During the day, he was in the backyard of the house near where I found him. About 4 days after I found him, I was holding him in my cupped hands when his mama came by to feed him. She had seen me around, I guess, because she just flew over, perched on my hand and then fed him. This happened a
number of times, so I called a friend who is good with a video camera, and he came over to film some of the amazing goings on that I told him about.

There’s a lot more to this story, but that’s enough info to give you some context for the video we posted to YouTube. Here’s the link:
