So sad - Found one of my Hummers dead
Well, actually I didn't find him. My husband did.
I can't believe I'm so bummed about this and even my husband has been quiet since the find.
This morning while filling the blue bird feeders for me, my husband spotted something dark green and brown next to the house on the cement walkway and he thought it was a couple old leaves stuck together.
The closer he got, he knew.
The little guy was in perfect shape. Not even ruffled feathers.
The Hummers have been fighting a lot more than usually the last few days so near as we can figure is that two Hummers went at each other and the one hummer darted left when he should have darted right and hit head-on into the stucco of the side of the house.
Wow, I didn't realize I'd take it so bad. I know, I know. It's part of life, just a hummer. But still...
Probably out of guilt, just in case I might have done something wrong, as soon as my husband buried our hummer I took down all the feeders, sanitized them, filled them with fresh-made necture (I had just done this Thursday) and washed down the whole back yard---plants, dwarf citrus trees (where the feeders are hung) and the side of the house and garage.
Is there anything else I can do to insure that Hummer's death is not something I might have caused?
