has taken a wounded bird under her wing.
The singer came to the rescue of an injured hummingbird she discovered on her Texas ranch
over the weekend.
"Look what I found. Poor thing must have hit my window and is stunned. Hope he's not hurt 2 bad," she Tweeted
Sunday, with a photo of the tiny bird in the palm of her hand.
The animal lover and mom to 10-month-old son Kase
set up a cozy place for the bird to recover and nursed it with supplemental food
"I gave him sugar water and made him a comfy little nest out of old gloves," she Tweeted
. "Hope he feels better!"
