Ruby-throated Hummingbird Rescued - July 19, 2009
Our male ruby-throated hummingbird flew straight into our porch window, probably going after the red shirt of the person standing just inside it. He landed updside down in a tarp on the porch where he was stuck and would not have survived. I picked him up in my hand and he quickly flew off and crash landed in the grass not far away, lying on his side looking dazed. I sat next to him for a bit, then lifted him into an upright position in the grass. He looked at me slowly blinking his eye. After about 10 minutes, he was recovered enough to fly off.
