Project Wildlife to the Rescue
Yesterday Christina found a Baby-Hummingbird on our garage driveway. The little one must have fallen down from the nest in the palm tree or so. Anyway, what to do with it? Someone gave a hint leading to to the San Diego Project Wildlife. The good people take abandoned wild animals, also Hummingbirds (they have even specific instructions). It was after hours, but a voice message was returned within the hour, and we could drop the bird at a volunteers home quite close-by. It turns out that they already had a couple of chicks (it is the season), and they predicted good chances of survival. The picture below is from November 2007 when we still had Bird of Paradise bush, which is a Hummingbird favorite.
