The Smallest Bird on Earth

I am sure we have all seen one at one time or another. This beautiful tiny little bird with beautiful iridescent feathers. One of our smallest birds on this earth is from the hummingbird family. Motoring around in our gardens sipping at the nectar. Sometimes when they arrive back, they go to the trees for that liquid gold. “Sap”.

In the spring one of our arrivals back is the yellow-bellied sapsucker. He is the one who taps multiple tiny holes in the trees, producing sap leakage. Many benefit from this; bees, butterflies, flies, ants, etc., and hummingbirds. This is life when no flowers are out yet. Ruby-throated hummingbirds are what we see here. Amazing tiny birds. A mere 3.5 inches long weighing in at about 3.1 to 3.4 grams. Its body temperature runs between 105 to 108 degrees F.

Procyon is in full swing now!

Volunteers busy feeding cleaning. Monitoring all these little lives from morning til night.

Volunteers are always needed to keep it going smoothly. These little guys are a lot of work. But seeing them go free come fall is just so rewarding. There are no words.

Fawns are starting to arrive now as well. Please always remember with fawns and rabbits that moms feed them a couple times a day. Leaving them alone to keep them safe the rest of the time. They curl up and they have no scent. So if you find these little treasures make sure you wait 24 hrs and make sure mom is really gone before you assume them to be orphaned. Unless you physically see the mother dead or injured
