This morning there was a hummingbird trapped in our garage. He was trying to get through the glass on the window. Our cat was watching very inquisitively (and licking his lips). The little bird was so tired from trying to get through the glass that he finally sit on the window sill. My dear sweet husband got the net we use to clean the leaves out of the hot tub and quietly spoke to the little bird saying " It is OK, i am only trying to help you" He slowly put the net near the bird and the hummingbird got on the net and my husband very slowly took him near the garage door opening and the little bird flew away.

It all happened so fast I did not have time to take pictures but wanted to share this with you. Sweet huh?

I love these moments. They are somehow magical.
We saved a pigeon last month that froze to our neigbor's sidewalk.
