The Five Sided Box

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by toni montuori

A Humming bird mistakenly flew into my garage and she could not find her way out of the five sided box.She spent most of her attempts up at the ceiling level where she inadvertently picked up cob webs.She managed remarkably to remove those webs, but not before they bound themselves around her beak.After freeing herself she was completely fatigued.I did what I do best and I fed her by bringing a feeder to her.She immediately drank but afterward made no more attempts to escape and just perched.Only now did I intervened and she allowed me with a gloved hand to pick her up and take her to the yard
