We found transport. 

After looking at a poor photo of the bird it looks to me like a young
Ruby-throat.  If that's the case my guess is that the bird got stuck in the
building, became exhausted and landed in the box of just arrived Chilean
apples.  Maybe I'm wrong though.

A hummingbird arrived at Trader Joes in Yonkers NY last night trapped in a
box of apples that arrived from Chile. It is scheduled to arrive in Stamford
at 9 am. Needs transport to Jayne Neville - Cheshire/Southington area. If
anyone is able to drive it north this morning please let me know. I may be
able to leave work and meet somewhere in between.
