Every day new patients arrive at our facility. In an effort to tell their story of survival and highlight the diverse number of species that we rehabilitate, we highlight a new patient each week. Some of these are individuals, others are orphaned siblings. As their cases progress - we will update the outcome - our hope is that many, many of these patients are released!

We have had dozens of calls about these birds over the past few days. We have a couple in care now and many were warmed up and then released again by the caring people that found them. Road conditions and the cold, snowy weather can make it hard for some people to get to us. Hummingbirds will go into a state of torpor during these conditions. This is normal and how they conserve energy. Keep your feeders from freezing by adding a heat source and keep the sugar water fresh. Call us if you have questions or are concerned that something else is wrong with the bird. We are open with some limited hours due to the holiday weekend and weather conditions.
