The juvy Mississippi kite is with a new buddy at Bubba & Friends now, giving him a pal for when they migrate toward the end of this month.
The wobbly thrasher was released last week and has joined the “Mooch Mob” in demanding handouts.
1. KEEP CATS INDOORS for the safety of all our wildlife—and for the safety of the cats.
2. Please, please, PLEASE don’t use that nasty red dye hummer food. Did you know you can make your own hummer nectar much more cheaply using just sugar and water? One part sugar to four parts water—i.e., 1 cup sugar and 4 cups water—mixed well and heated for a few minutes on the stove or in the microwave to further dissolve the sugar and destroy any bacteria in the water. Allow to cool and place in your feeders.
And there ya go—hummer nectar that’s easier on your pocketbook and, more importantly, easier on the hummers’ kidneys.
As of today, he’s looking better; his feathers are less ruffled. He buzzes around his cage and can hover and fly well, so he’s a candidate for release ASAP.
