Hummingbird Rescue

The covered entryway into our house has skylights, and often we have hummingbirds stuck up there. We rush out with a broom, get them to land on it and bring them down to freedom. We may think hummingbirds are fragile, but they clearly are tough little birds. This one would not land on the broom, but I finally got him to come down low enough so that he landed on my hand and let me take him out to a tree branch near the hummingbird feeder. It was an amazing moment, and we were glad to get a couple of quick pictures while he rested in my hands.
