Great Humming Bird Rescue Of 2012


My mom had the front door open yesterday so I could go outside and sun when I wanted to, because the weather was beautiful!!  She also has two humming bird feeder on the front porch that get visited by LOTS of humming birds everyday.  I will sit out there and watch them fight over their food.  They can get nasty when it come to eating!  BOL!


When I came in there was this loud noise in the window…of course I went on high alert and notified my mom that something was going on!  After closer examination, I discovered that it was a humming bird!

My mom is so brave and went and grabbed a dishtowel to catch it. 

Mom wanted me to mention that yes, her dishtowel is holey and falling apart and her nails look horrible, but to please not judge!  BOL!  Moms worry about the silliest things!


The little fella is so tiny and cute!  He stayed in moms hands for a moment and then he few off!  Mom said that he was so scared he didn’t know what to do.


I watched for a few minutes hoping we would come back, but he didn’t.

I guess mom needs to add another title to her name, humming bird rescuer!


  1. Oh Higgins, I'm so proud of you and your Momma! What a great rescue! Those are terrific pictures of the hummingbird! Tell your Momma not to worry about her dish towel and nails, they look just like mine! LOL!

  4. Your mom is great. But remember it all started with you alert. If it hadn't been for you, who knows what would have happened the the little bird.

  5. Oh Higgins... that is so wonderful that your mom helped the little hummer. I had one that got his beak stuck in our screen once. My Mom got it out and saved it. Mom's are grrrreat.

    PeeS... am I supposed to be following Patrice too?

  6. That was very sweet of your mum to rescue that little bird. We have never seen one so close before, he is so beautiful.
    We think he will come and visit you again Higgins after you helped tell your mum he was injured.

  8. Oh well done Higgins' Mum! How lovely to have Hummingbirds in your yard. I bet he'll come back and use the feeder. Deccy x

  9. I'm glad that the little guy was OK. We have a humming bird feeder right outside the window by my mom person's computer. We used to get lots of humming birds, but last year she didn't get any & so far none this year :(

    Happy Mother's day to your mom person.

    Huggies and Cheese,
