Default update

camera has been down since shortly after the baby hummer left for rehab.
they have continued to update the page there with info, tho (see below).
I think the adult female (Phoebe) is expected to build another nest in late October. If she does, we'll be able to see it live again.

UPDATE(s):
Pungh0li0: June 25, 2009 The hummer rescuer called tonight. Jewel is doing very well. She still can't hover but she has been moved to a larger cage which she shares with an Anna's (gasp). Lisa thinks it will be a couple more weeks before release. We are going to visit next Friday. We'll take lots of pictures.
8 days ago

Pungh0li0: We had a lovely visit with Jewel at the bird rescuer's house. I even got to hold Jewel again. She can fly well for short periods but Lisa is going to give her more time to mature. Her cage-mate is a more mature Anna's and he pesters Jewel a lot so Lisa is going to put a different chick in with her.

Pungh0li0: We were even given the honor of releasing a group of hummers that were in the large outdoor cage. Take a look:
(NOTE: these are other rehab hummers - NOT jewel)

I loved the way they left and hovered around their humans before taking off for the tree. The hummer left behind to teach the new group was fascinating. Question for you. Why two doors on the larger cages? There must be a reason.

2cents

just guessing. don't know for sure.
I think it's just so the humans can get in and out of it easier. one large door wouldn't work - too easy for the mini hoverers to plan an es-cape before their time.
also twice the area for them to exit from when they are ready.

p.s - it took me forever to decide on a smilie.
they've got all these new ones.
hope I picked the right ones

I'm so happy she was able to be released. I worried about that little one.
