Baby Hummingbird video (not my own work)

The following is NOT my was sent to me in an email, but it is so wonderful and amazing that I had to share it with you.  I am still gasping and uttering those wful "aww" noises.  Hope you enjoy it.

This is actually a pretty amazing story about a baby hummingbird that was found on a sidewalk.  He couldn't fly, so I took him under my wing.  At night, he would come home to our house for safety.  During the day, he was in the backyard of the house near where I found him. 

About 4 days after I found him, I was holding him in my cupped hands when his mama came by to feed him.  She had seen me around, I guess, because she just flew over, perched on my hand and then fed him.  This happened a number of times, so I called a friend who is good with a video camera, and he came over to film some of the amazing goings on that I told him about.

I hope this is enough info to give you some context for the video we posted to YouTube.  Here's the link:
