My three year old found a hummingbird today. It reminded me of the time my son caught a blue jay and let it go in our house. We still have blue feathers on the ceiling to prove it. Do these things happen to ordinary people?

We helped it to the feeder and it drank for a good while and then flew away. You can see the tongue in this photo.
