Small Hummer trapped in spider web
I have been feeding Hummingbirds for years from a feeder attached to the back porch overhang. We love to set and watch them come and go, and buzz off interlopers. Today my wife came running in, and cried, "A hummingbird is trapped in a spider web!". I rushed out, and sure enough, a small hummingbird was entangled in a web. it would flap weakly and then just hang there. So I went out and carefully removed it from the web, and did my best to get all the web off it, and all the time - it's chirping: scared I guess. I let it go and it flapped off (not hummer like at all) into the trees. Now I worry that I should have not released it so quickly. It was probably weakened by trying to escape. I think it was a young bird, not fully grown. I never thought a humming bird could get caught in a spider web.
