Firefighter Rescues Baby Hummingbird

Prepare yourself for the gentlest lunch you've ever seen.

A baby hummingbird that was kicked out of its nest was found by paramedic firefighters in Sacramento, California on March 30.

The team worked tirelessly, and ever-so-delicately, to nurse the tiny bird back to health, periodically feeding it some tasty sugar water, according to a Facebook post.

Once the bird was healthy enough, it was transferred to the Wildlife Care Association, where it could receive better treatment.

Let's hope it'll be zooming around the flowers and trees as soon as possible.

LONDON - JANUARY 22: This handout image, showing an artist's interpretation of the winged dinosaur, Microraptor Gui, was published in the Journal Nature on January 22, 2003 in London, England. Microraptor Gui was discovered by the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology in Beijing. Scientist believe the four-winged dinosaur, measuring around one meter (red and black bar at bottom left represents five cm) lived approximately 130-million years ago and would have flown in the same way a flying squirrel does today.
