This afternoon one of them managed to crash into a screen door. The inattentive humanoid resident did not notice his (hummers are too mean to be girls) plight for some minutes. The valiant bird had his long beak jammed into the screen and had given up the struggle. He hung there still as death - but was he? They have been known to smash into windows and die. The resident larger life form approached the pendent creature and gently pushed the quarter inch of bill on its point.
HUMMMMMMM - the tiny, power plant started up the blur of wings and off he flew.
