Trapped

A little hummingbird was seemingly trapped on the covered deck this morning. He kept trying to escape by flying upwards continually banging his head and wings into the ceiling. I left for a time giving him a chance to perhaps regain his orientation. I returned later. Seeing him in the same situation, I offered the tip of a broom handle to him which he readily accepted. I moved him clear of the deck and he chose to rest for a minute on his perch before he took off.

  2. Sometimes we happen along at just the right moment to be helpful.

  3. He must have been exhausted to accept the perch so easily.

    Those little birds get trapped all the time! I saved one this spring from a garage. At least they are easy to set free.

    Why the poor little thing. It must have really been flustered. I am glad you were able to help it before it knocked its little head off.
