Many of us have pets. Depending on how well trained they are and your desire to maintain your shoe collection, a vid like this may seem at once wonderfully familiar or perhaps closer to a scene out of a Disney movie. Either way, one can’t help but gaze in wonder at how João Silvestrini has seemingly made friends with a rather large hummingbird.
Hailing from Barretos, Brazil, Mr. Silvestrini’s abode has been routinely visited by a mother and baby hummingbird. At first it was only the mother, but once she knew she could trust the man she brought her baby along. He’s developed something of a friendship with the birds, since you can see him asking the bird questions and where to go. He even at one point asks rather politely if the bird would hold still for the video camera.
