Ruby Throated Hummingbird

Hummingbirds get into the office or studio from time to time, and I trap them in my hands, then go outside and open my hands. They sit there for a second, then realize they’re free, and take off like a miniature helicopter. This one must have got into the  studio when no one was around, and we found it dead. They are so small that they mummify, with no smell.

  2. Oh my goodness! You are the first person I have found to have held a hummingbird. I, too, have had the experience on three separate occasions. They would get trapped in our garage, attracted to the large red and yellow triangle on the back of our tractor. Doing it once was amazing! But, then doing it each year after was magical. I saved three little lives and felt the beauty of nature in my hands and in my heart. Blessed be.
