Helping Injured Hummingbird Drink From a Flower

I am a wildlife rehabilitator. This is a (presumed) juvenile male ruby throated hummingbird that came in for wildlife rehabilitation with an injured wing. Here I am checking how alert he is and if he will drink from the flowers that the hummingbirds in my garden frequent. He seemed to enjoy it, but the bulk of his diet is a specially formulated nectar. Hummingbirds cannot survive in captivity on the plain sugar water they receive in our feeders (but they do need nectar.) They also need the insects they eat in the wild. Showing this bird a flower was a rare event and he was returned immediately afterwards to a calm, quiet indoor cage with plenty of his specially formulated nectar available.
