One day Will Salameh found a Hummingbird trapped in his garage, and he decided to rescue it. It was 8 am when Salameh saw the creature, and the bird didn’t seem to have the energy to fly away.
Fortunately, Salameh had a syringe that he used to feed the bird. He put sugar water in the syringe, and the Hummingbird happily ate from it.
The Hummingbird stretched his wings after eating and started to flap, but he still couldn’t fly yet. A few hours passed, and the bird was still in Salameh’s garage.
Around 1 pm, the bird received more sugar water and continued to recover. Salameh built a nest for the Hummingbird in a small plastic box. The bird appeared to fully trust Salameh at this point.
It is rare to catch a Hummingbird up close because they move so fast, and Salameh was determined to get his new friend back to flying freely.
By 3 pm, the bird still needed more time, and Salameh continued to nurse him from the syringe. When it was time for the Hummingbird to leave, Salameh reached into the makeshift nest and gently picked up the bird.
The Hummingbird appears to be okay at this point but is reluctant to leave his new friend. Then the bird looks at Salameh as if to say thank you and flies away a few minutes later.
