Crippled hummingbird

Discovered something very sad yesterday - our male hummingbird has a broken leg/foot. He seems to be doing okay - flies and feeds no problem, and still does the courtship dive for the females - but when he perches, he straddles the branch and his bad leg just dangles. It breaks my little heart to see him like this. :(

  1. Hi
    I don't know if you've come across this blog but from your comment in your profile about you "four legged daughter" and you blog content I think you might like Julie's blog.

    Maybe this guy just likes to sit funny.
