A Hummingbird Discovered

Mike Flom, a friend of the Celery Farm, writes:

I found this Ruby-throated Hummingbird in my garage by the Celery Farm this morning, making distressed chirps while fluttering against a closed window. 

As I gently guided it with a plastic rake toward the open garage door, the hummingbird paused on a flower-colored beach blanket. 
While no nectar was reported, it picked up nesting material before flying to freedom. 
(Thanks, Mike!)
