A Hummingbird

“A hummingbird is trapped in the women’s change room,” was the call from Keough’s pool. The area has a sloping roof and two spaces with a partial wall and low doorway between. The hummer was buzzing at the highest point in the inner room—typical of birds trapped indoors.

We hung a feeder near the bird who was running out of energy. She came down and fed. We moved the feeder to the low doorway; she followed into the next room; we moved the feeder to the hall doorway; she followed; the feeder was placed outside; she followed. The hummer was out—free—and zoomed away!!
