Young man rescues baby hummingbird

This video is nearly three years old, so some of you may have seen this already. (In fact, I’d posted it on FOTM two years ago. LOL)
But if you’re feeling blue about the state of affairs in America and the world, watching this will lift your spirits. It’s a reminder that there’s still good in this world.

The young man had rescued the baby hummingbird after it was “attacked” (by a predator?). Here’s his update:
UPDATE!!! when she thought she was ready to leave (and she was) she flew off to her favorite patch of the back yard, and her instincts instantly kicked in, and now she’s just like all the other hummingbirds. for those that are concerned that she has imprinted on humans and wouldn’t survive in the wild, don’t worry, she is thriving. she has even successfully migrated and returned back to my yard. and for those who think i didn’t know what i was doing, i did NOT feed her plain sugar water. i went outside 3 times a day and caught flies from my compost bin (be green people) in big bags, crushed them, and mixed them in as well. I also helped her learn to catch flies while flying (not in the video because the flies were too small). It was a pretty hectic but very rewarding experience and, in the end, i don’t think it could have worked out any better 🙂
