My husband likes doing his own gardening. We have enough tomato plants to feed the entire town. He has them staked in various ways. A hummingbird got caught in one of the tomato plant cages we have and my husband found it, barely alive.
He has a hummingbird feeder and mixed up the plain mix (no coloring) to try and help it. While the little bird rallied for about two hours, drinking from a syringe we used like an eyedropper, it ultimately didn’t make it. I am surprisingly sad that this little creature, that I really didn’t have much hope for at first, didn’t make it after rallying.
But wild birds are hard to rehab and we have no experience. I have no idea how long the little thing was trapped, either.
