Hello, This evening, my husband and I found a Ruby Throated Hummingbird on our walkway. We think it flew into a window at the front of our house. It is still alive and has moved 180 degrees from where we found it. We’ve put a hummingbird feeder near it on the walkway and it seems to be licking at the sugar water around the feeder openings. If it were daytime, we’d call the Lab of O and see if there are any suggestions as to what, if anything, to do at this point.
We’re concerned, of course, about a possible predator, and thought of putting a colander over the bird, but then the feeder couldn’t be near the bird. Any thoughts? Is this a lost cause? We felt we had to try. Thanks for any suggestions, Kathleen Kramer -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
