Wildlife in Care: Anna’s Hummingbird 11-0050

Jan26

Anna's-Hummingbird-110050-on-perch-2-web Anna's-Hummingbird-110050-on-perch-web A woman in Seattle found this male Anna’s Hummingbird sitting on her doorstep January 20.

The bird seemed to be in shock and didn’t attempt to fly away. She brought him to PAWS where the hummingbird was examined by our wildlife rehabilitator and veterinarian on duty. They discovered some hemorrhage and swelling in his left eye. He likely suffered the injury by colliding with a window.

Despite his injury, the hummingbird was doing well as of this writing. Although he was still a little bit lethargic, he was able to fly and feed himself.

If all goes well he should be released back into the wild within a week or two.
