Happy hummer rescue in garage
This morning I was outside watering the plants and a hummer flew into our garage and couldn't find the way out. We opened both garage doors and the back door, but all she wanted to do was fly upward aginst the ceiling. We tried to herd her out the doors by walking toward her, but that seemed to frighten her more, so we went inside and peeped through a slit in the door. After what seemed like several minutes of flying frantically, she ran out of energy and just went to the floor. My husband gently picked her up and she did not flutter or resist. We put her in the flower container where we keep the feeder. She was so still, I couldn't tell whether she was even alive. I thought maybe she was in shock. About ten minutes later, we checked on her and she was gone, and shortly thereafter, I saw a hummer sitting on a perch in the window box where it usually sits. I hope it was that same hummingbird. I hope we did more good than harm, but I'm not sure. Does someone with more experience with birds have advice for these situations.
