Awww that's a tradgedy! Poor thing. Do you think it's because their hearts are constantly beating and that has something to do with it?

Yeah their heart beats very fast and they have a high metabolism and tress will make them burn up there small resources that much faster. To survive not eating while resting at night they go into a type of hibernation. They are very delicate.

We had one somehow get in one of our old places with high ceilings. I tossed a towel over it from up the stairs and caught it on a shelf like thing under me. We gave it some sugar water and it was good to go after.

One here. I heard chirping coming from the back of the house and one was in the bedroom. Probably the cats fault but he wasn't around. He was tired and just caught him in my hand and took him out. He sat on my hand a very long time before he regained himself enough to fly off.

It seems like you guys have had a lot of dealings with hummingbirds. I've only ever seen one or two flit past our window. :b
