Man Helps Hummingbird Recover After Hitting Window — But The Little Guy Won’t Leave!

A rescued hummingbird perched on a man's finger.

After this man rescued a hummingbird who had collided with a window, he seems to have made a new feathered friend! A TikToker recently shared the most adorable footage of the little bird waking up in his hand after the accident. Although the animal was dazed, they were otherwise ok. However, they weren’t in a big hurry to fly away. In fact, the little critter seemed pretty attached to the man who had saved him!

In the video, the rescued hummingbird refused to leave their perch on the human’s finger. When they finally did take off, they ended up flying right back onto the man’s shoulder!

“Am I a Disney princess?” the TikToker joked in his clip.

Since it didn’t seem like the bird was going anywhere anytime soon, the guy decided to give them a name. He called the critter Windex!

Of course, all good things eventually come to an end. Once the hummingbird was sufficiently recovered, they finally left the scene of the rescue and flew off on their own. It was a bittersweet goodbye!

This adorable friendship between a hummingbird and the guy who rescued them touched many a heart in the comments section.

“I’m so jealous, this is my dream,” wrote one user.

Another said, “Disney is going to make a movie about this.”

Maybe this rescued hummingbird will come back for a visit someday, or maybe this man will never see his little friend again. Either way, we know he’ll always treasure his special moment with the tiny animal!
