How to Get a Trapped Hummingbird Out of Your Garage

Busy birds with good eyesight like bright colors, especially red. The hue of a feeder can be mistaken for a rag or garage item. They may get stuck when they search for food.

When planting bright flowers from the garage, be careful. What better spot to relax and stay?

Hummingbirds quickly fly away from danger when they perceive it. Unfortunately, one that has flown into an enclosed structure may not be able to escape, even if a neighboring garage door or window is open.

Birds may fly into your garage because they assume they can pass through it, even though it seems too big. If you have a garage with several windows or a door with glass window inserts, the bird may assume it can fly.

Birds may enter a garage to find a safe nesting spot. They may try housekeeping on open shelves or quiet areas.

“Hummingbirds are some of our most impressive and fragile bird species,” says New York City biologist Ben Young. “They can cover 23 miles a day at 3 to 4 inches tall! The most common hummingbird in New York, the ruby-throated, can move approximately 1,200 miles per season.

Hummingbirds need a lot of energy since their hearts beat 1,200 times each minute and they flap their wings 80 times per second. Young hummingbirds migrate alone and can get into trouble.”

Birds that get into new regions may not escape. Even with a wide open garage door, they can't leave. Before resting, the bewildered bird will search every high corner of the room.
