Apparently, this little guy jumped out of the nest before he was ready to fly. Luckily, we found it before the dog did. Mom and Dad were pretty upset with me too.

PS, for anyone who's been following my hummingbird baby threads... I regret to say the babies perished when ants invaded the nest. If any of you are fortunate enough to have a hummingbird nest built in your yard, grease the branch leading to the nest with vaseline or similar. We did not anticipate this gruesome tragedy or we certainly would have done something about it.

Very cute. Did you put him back in the nest?

No, I couldn't get to the nest... it's buried high in a huge/thick rose bush, so I set him on a branch near the nest, but he wouldn't stay. So now he's wandering around the back yard. Hope a neighbor's cat doesn't get him.
