Happy Easter! Before putting my Granddaughter to bed last night, we noticed a hummingbird flying frantically back and forth outside our kitchen window. This was odd since it was in the dark of night. I thought of my sister Martha who has a connection with hummingbirds and I hoped she was OK--maybe she was in trouble and sent a hummingbird to alert me! (Yes, I believe things like this)After falling asleep reading bedtime stories, I got up around midnight to help the Easter bunny hide a basket. There, in another window was the hummingbird! He looked like he was trying to get my attention! He then flew back to the kitchen window where there's a tangle of jasmine growing up and around it. On closer inspection I could see there was something on his beak and he was trailing a long sticky web that kept getting caught in the jasmine. I put on a jacket and slippers, went outside, the moon was up and very bright. Coyotes were barking and howling somewhere off in the back bay. I reached up and easily caught the bird--it was so exhausted, it almost fell into my hands. I brought it over to the outside light and pulled off the spidery web around its beak and the one that was trailing from his leg. He opened his beak a few times in relief. I went back to the jasmine, opened my hands, but he didn't budge--now I was kind of stuck with this humming bird dead asleep in my hands! (They go into a sort of sleep called torpor?) With some difficulty, (having my hands full with such a light and delicate creature), I went inside and was able to put the bird in a gift box that was handy with a soft rag on the bottom. I woke up hearing some flutter. My cat was on the table batting the box around! Scat cat! My granddaughter and I brought the box outside to see if it would fly away...here's a clip--not very clear.
