A female hummingbird flew into our garage and couldn't find her way back out so we got the ladder and the net both of which are over ten feet tall because our big Hoover garage is about 16 feet high or higher and over 20x30 so a large area to cover.
She was getting tired hovering and getting no where plus the fear of us humans trying eat her, in her perspective I'm sure.
Finally, she was netted by putting the net opening over her and tightening the rim against the ceiling and sort of gently scooting her out the door.
I couldn't see where or if she landed but she was hauling hummingbird butt that's for sure and certain.
Being able to save her was a great feeling. Birds tend to go high when they feel threatened and the ceiling is several feet higher than the door opening. She needed help and I'm really happy we were able to help her.
On a sad note, our Writing Spider has passed away and with no obvious reason. She is so big and beautiful. We will miss her.
