Check it out, I rescued a humming bird today!
I noticed her just sitting on a window eave, and she didn’t fly off when I got closer. Weird for a hummingbird, right?
So I checked it out, and when I got there I noticed that her wings, beak, and body were all wrapped in a spider web. Not that a spider did that – I think she did it to herself struggling once she got partly caught in the web. I reached out and as gently as I could and got a hold of her and very gently unwound the webs. These guys are so tiny! I could feel her little heart beating and everything.
The coolest part was letting her go. She sat there for a minute in my open hand, looking around, bobbing up and down, making these little squeaking noises. Then after a bit (like 30 seconds maybe?) she spread her little wings, almost to test them out or something, pulled them back in, and then ZOOOM she was off.
