Hummingbirds are unique, beautiful animals. Since they move so quick, we typically only get a fleeting look of them– unless they remain in trouble.
That’s what happened with a man called Will certainly Salameh. The kind man wound up getting up an up-close encounter with a hummingbird that needed rescuing.
The bird was found around 8 am in Will’s garage, and the homeowner luckily had a little syringe around so that the bird could be fed and re-hydrated.
What good luck! The bird drank greedily from the syringe and even searched for at its rescuer as if to say “hey, thanks, man!”
After getting some of its energy back, it handled to stretch its wings– however it still really did not go anywhere.
A few hours later the hummingbird was still in the garage where it was conserved ( maybe trying to obtain its wits about it? We’re not sure how many wits a hummingbird has though).
By 1 pm it was ready for a little more sugar water before it took flight, and its savior was happy to oblige.
After that, around 3 pm, when it looked like the bird may need even more time than expected, the good samaritan located some items to make it a little nest and nursed it some more from the syringe.
However, eventually, it was time to go and we see a hand reach into the little plastic box with the nesting materials to pluck out the bird (who appeared to be getting pretty comfortable).
It’s pretty magical to see a hummingbird rest comfortably on someone’s hand, however this little creature appeared to recognize it was safe.
So safe, actually, that it chose not to leave. After all, if someone offers you a cushy pad and free food that you don’t need to find yourself, what’s the rush?
Also as 4 o’clock rolled about, the hummingbird was still standing by, seemingly unwilling to leave its new friend.
Fortunately, a few minutes later it decided it was safe enough to leave the comfort of its convalescent confines and fly away.
This is not the first time a hummingbird has actually made news for sticking around after a save.
A man and his brand-new rescue canine Rex discovered a hummingbird in need. And after years of living on the mean streets, it was the dog that rescued the little creature!
The hummingbird looked dead– it was featherless, covered in ants, and on the ground. However the dog refused to leave it.
Ed Gernon felt he had no choice however to take it home. And he wound up nursing it all the back to health– even showing it to fly once again using a hairdryer!
He named the bird Hummer and it resided in his home for quite some time. After it flew off, it would certainly even come back to visit its rescuers!
It’s wonderful to hear these stories of people aiding small hummingbirds in need. And it’s beautiful to see simply how grateful the little birds are.
