Hummingbird Rescued from Spiderweb

Occurred on September 1, 2019 / Ashland, Alabama, USA

Info from Licensor: "We came home to Hidden Creek Farm to discover this vulnerable creature had flown into a sticky spider web. Whenever possible, we drive with the windows down to enjoy nature; when we pulled up to our home, we heard the call of what sounded like fear from this hummingbird. During the rescue, we heard 2 distinctly different sounds: 1 from the web, and another when Andy was cleaning the web from its wing. We were able to hold the delicate bird, feel its rapid heartbeat, and feed it! All of these moments were nothing short of remarkable. This creature lost 3 propeller feathers, which was concerning. Approximately 1 hour later, it flew away. A magical moment for us all to witness."
