To Catch a Hummingbird

Posted By Smockity Frocks On September 15, 2009 @ 12:09 pm In Bugs and Animals,Family,Parenting | 16 Comments



My three year old found a hummingbird today. It reminded me of the time my son caught a blue jay and let it go in our house. We still have blue feathers on the ceiling to prove it. Do these things happen to ordinary people?



This little guy didn’t make it into the house.


The neck feathers were so much more brilliant than this photo shows. (Click photo to enlarge.)

We helped it to the feeder and it drank for a good while and then flew away. You can see the tongue in this photo.
