VIDEO: Man pets, comforts hummingbird after animal runs into window


MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Hummingbirds aren’t known for sitting still for too long.

So, actually getting to pet one of the fast-flying birds might seem next to impossible. One Myrtle Beach man, however, turned out to be the exception to the rule.

In a video posted to his Facebook page, Christopher Favale, is seen petting a hummingbird that was perched on his finger.

How was this possible? According to Favale, the hummingbird slammed into his kitchen window and was so stunned that the animal climbed onto the kind stranger’s hand.

Favale said the hummingbird recovered and flew away after the video was filmed.

His wife, Jennifer, said he’s the type of person who “pulls the car over to help a turtle cross the road.”
