Greeting Fellow Sparksters! Have I got a story for you! Today I had my first hummingbird kiss, and it wasn't on my lips, but in my nose....
For those of you who don't know yet, I am a big hummingbird lover. I have a feeder in
my yard and have several hummingbirds who have become so familiar with me that they
will sit on my finger as I feed them from my single tube hummingbird feeder. It's a dream come true!
But today, one of the little birds, one which I saved from a Bluejay several weeks ago was in my yard. He's wasn't looking too good....I think the Bluejay hurt him more than I had thought, so his flight pattern was erratic. He flew right up to my face and I closed my eyes because I wasn't sure what he was going to do, and then I felt a tiny little lick just inside my nose. My eyes flew open in surprise and then he flew away to a nearby tree. I kept my eye on him all day and by the end of the day I could tell he was really struggling. He flew to the ground and I covered him with a soft cloth and picked him up and called the local spca to come and get him to rehabilitate him. So I'm asking for your prayers spark family for this precious little flying jewel. I feel like a mom, my heart is heavy with worry. Its little kiss is something I'll never forget...wish I had that on video :)
