Hummingbird

Hummingbirds are one of my favorite birds. They are just cute. I just get excited every time I see a hummingbird....can't imagine holding one!
This little fella accidentally flew into our garage weeks ago. Hubby was trying to catch it but the bird was frantic and so desperate to get out. Hubby starting to get frustrated after a few minutes of chasing the bird around. So, I came to the rescue and dragged a bar stool. I reached up and carefully closed my hand around its small wings. I caught a hummingbird!
His body is so fragile. So cute and tiny. We set him free after a few minutes of mesmerization and pictorial...lol!

That's indeed a cute catch. ;) Few days ago, my dad caught one of the local sparrow bird (I think) to show it to my son. He's so scared to hold it. He decided to keep it as a pet, he even tried feeding him bread. But I told him that we have to set him free otherwise he'll just die. Thankfully, he agreed. :)

So cute naman kasi it looks tiny. But nakakatakot yung beak! Good thing it didn't poke you!

Take care!

Yes, hummingbirds are so cute but also very fragile. You have such deft fingers to be able to catch that hummingbird that entered your yard. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
