In a wonder-filled voice, nature writer Sy Montgomery (THE SOUL OF AN OCTOPUS) recounts the time she assisted with the rehabilitation of two orphaned hummingbird chicks. Originally published as a chapter in Montgomery's 2010 book BIRDOLOGY and with a new introduction here, this brief audio is a hummingbird-sized meditation on the beauty, fragility, and resilience of these charismatic birds. As the babies are carefully fed (every 20 minutes!), cleaned, and readied for release, Montgomery's warm and intimate delivery makes listeners care about each development and setback. And her descriptions of these tiny marvels will almost certainly inspire you to step outside and observe the natural world with a new appreciation.
