Near Disaster

Recognize that silhouette? Yes, it's a hummingbird and it caught its beak in the screen on the porch, the upper part. It was frantic, beating its wings, calling out trying to extricate itself. I thought at first it was after a bug so I went out on the porch expecting that my presence would send it on its way, but that wasn't the case. I called Dan to come since he was taller, but not tall enough to reach it. He went to the garage for the step ladder and as he carried it to the porch, the hummingbird's last pull of its head brought its beak out and it flew off. I still can't figure how it got caught in the first place.
