I rescued this little bird when it fell at my feet out of a tree a few weekends ago. I made it some sugar water and with the help of one of my friends we got her to take the nectar and build up enough strength to fly and get to these flowers herself. She was zooming all over the show by the time we left. I think she was probably just learning to fly and ran out of steam because she was battling to fly and she fell to the ground hitting a chair as she fell, as she just didnt have enough energy, so we gassed her up which she enjoyed, was licking it off of our fingers and hopefully survived the ordeal.
