Was it “feathery” tired? 

A hummingbird which wound up at a Virginia fire station was given a dose of sugar water before it flew away, a local fire department said.

The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department Twitter account posted an image of the hummingbird with a syringe of liquid on Monday.

Recently Station 31, Fox Mill, A-Shift flew into action as a patient winged its way into the station. The fly-in patient was a humming bird who appeared weak and lethargic. The crew fed the patient sugar water via syringe. After a short rest the patient got well and flew the coop pic.twitter.com/x19SFxwGUX

“Recently Station 31, Fox Mill, A-Shift flew into action as a patient winged its way into the station,” the tweet said. “The fly-in patient was a humming bird who appeared weak and lethargic.”

The bird could be seen drinking the fluid in a photo that accompanied the tweet.

“After a short rest the patient got well and flew the coop,” the tweet said.

The fire and rescue department did not immediately return a request for comment from FoxNews.com.
