{RIP Ernie the hummingbird

The lady from project wildlife was so nice. She tried to save him but his beak was soft and deformed. He died in her hands. She said he was extremely malnourished.

I wish I had called them sooner but I didn’t know when to intervene.

I buried him under the lemon tree.


I need a hug.

    You did way more than most would do…but best of all, YOU noticed he was here, gave him a name and shared it with all of us! Then you put Ernie in a safe spot. You cared. Ü

      Thanks. Now I’m just waiting for Mama Hummingbird to show up and take care of the one that’s left. She hasn’t come back to the nest yet.
