Here is little Hope, who was rescued after her nest was destroyed and her mother abandoned her. She has been taken in by Emma, who has 2 chicks of her own. This is groundbreaking; hummingbirds never have 3 young. But Emma is feeding her along with her own two, and she seems to be thriving. It is only a few days since she was rescued and has already grown a lot (as you can see in the first photograph, in the hand of her rescuer). The hosts of Emma's nest are working with a rehabber, who is keeping an eye on Hope. They also installed a tarp over the nest to keep everyone dry, and a blanket is ready underneath in case Hope should fall out. They deserve a huge vote of thanks for all their efforts.
