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.

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

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

    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.
