on a cooler day last week there was suddenly a thud at our dining room window and my daughter Caylagh called out to me, saying that a bird hat hit it and she thinks it might have died. We went outside and right away I found the little creature, laying on the rocks right under the window. It was a tiny humming bird that hat flown into the glass.
I picked it up very carefully and placed it into my daughters hands, hoping it wasn't too badly hurt. The tiny feathered critter hat knocked itself quite hard and stayed still in my daughter's palms for almost ten minutes, resting and recovering.
At first the little bird kept it's little eyes closed tightly ...
... but after it had calmed down a little it slowly opened them again.
And then suddenly it just flew up into the air. It stopped and seemed to stand still for a split moment in mid air ... right in front of our faces. It looked at us and then flew off onto our roof where it stayed for a little while, taking in the warmth of the sun rays before flying away again.
I am grateful that everything turned out to be OK with this little hummingbird and my daughter was very happy with the fact that she actually was able to help and hold this tiny creature in the palms of her hands ~ something I think, that she will remember for a long time.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.
