We were sitting out back when we saw a hummingbird fall to the deck. We assumed it was a window strike. It just lay there but was still breathing.
We have omnivore chipmunks that will "disappear" a bird, so action was needed.
Anne picked it up and held it in her hands and sheltered it until it revived.
It started to move its wings and Anne could feel the breeze on her palm just as the hummingbird lifted off and flew to a tree.
After it rested it flew to the feeder and had a meal.
Hopefully it is no worse for the experience.
