I have had success using my hummingbird feeder, attached to a pole (once even a broom handle was long enough) and extend it up near the bird. After he/she has had a long drink (fuel for more flight) I moved the feeder down closer to the garage door and he/she came down for another drink and then out the door!

We have a hummer that seems to be trapped in our garage.  He is flying frantically against the ceiling.  We have opened tje doors and the windows but he wont fly outside. Any suggestions on how to lure him out?
