A Brazilian man caught the touching relationship between himself and a young hummingbird on camera, and the bond is an adorable one.

A rough translation of what the man says to his hummingbird friend:

"Come here. Come here, let's talk close to the camera, okay? Wait, now come here. Drink a little bit, huh? Like this. Look here. Come here. Let's go to the camera, huh? It's filming. Look at this."

The man also notes that the hummingbird is just a juvenile, and that the bird's mother left him there, but hasn't been seen again. He says that the baby hummingbird comes back every day and flies through the window for his food, then returns back to the wild.

It's worth noting that while feeding birds can be an enjoyable experience, it's important to maintain a safe distance from all wild animals and never approach them yourself.
