A bird in the hand...

I had a unique experience today! We were going out to the car to go spend some time walking around Hanover, but as we walked through the screen porch between the front door and the carport, we heard a loud buzzing noise from up above. Up among the rafters, fluttering wildly against the underside of the roof was a poor, trapped hummingbird! It had obviously found its way in and gotten completely confused, and had no idea how to get out. I grabbed the ladder and put on a pair of gardening gloves, climbed up, and grabbed the poor little bird gently. He was looking pretty haggard, but I took him outside and let him go and he flew away, way up above the trees.

I've never held a hummingbird before! It was exciting.

I hope you all had a nice weekend!

When we were in a hotel in Arizona, a bird got in an panicked. David managed to calm it down and carry it outside in his hands. One of the more amazing things I've seen. birds are nifty! I'm glad yours came through ok!
