Take a look at this Right this Minute moment from Ashland, Alabama.

Andy is pulling into his driveway when he hears a bird that sounds like it’s in distress.

He quickly locates the tiny hummingbird trapped inside a spider web up in a tree at their house in Alabama.

Using a towel, he carefully frees the vulnerable creature from the sticky web.

He spends the next hour delicately removing the web from the bird’s body and can even feel its rapid heartbeat.

After giving his feathered friend some food, it’s finally strong enough to fly away.
