• Short Summary

    Good shots and natural sound of a humming bird called Hilda, being fed from a spoon.

  • Description

    Titles read: "PALS WITH WINGS".

    Location of events unknown - probably United States of America.

    Various studio shots show an elderly man feeding a humming bird called Hilda from a spoon. He draws the bird towards a microphone so we can hear the buzz of her wings. Hilda then feeds from a syringe that the man holds very close to his face. She stops buzzing to sit on the man's finger rest her beak on his lips. She then flies very close to his mouth - I think she is feeding from honey on his lips. It looks a bit freaky!
