Last trip to Aruba, I found a tiny baby Emerald hummingbird
on the sidewalk. It was about as big as my thumb. I picked it
up, and it hopped onto my shoulder and snuggled into my neck.
It seemed content to stay there as long as it wanted to, probably
for the warmth, but I couldn't keep it forever, so after some
time with oohhing and aahhing, I gently put him under a bush
near where I'd found him. I still hope he didn't become food
for a lizard.
Marilyn. We think you did the right thing in trying to put it
back safely where you found it. What a fascinating encounter.
Thank you for caring.
