|Hummingbird Rescue: Los Angeles and Surrounding Communities|
|We rehabilitate orphaned and injured hummingbirds in the Los Angeles area and surrounding communities, including Santa Monica, West LA, Beverly Hills, Pacific Palisades, Pasadena, and the San Fernando Valley.
Hummingbirds are protected under federal law and must be cared for by licensed wildlife rehabilitators only.* If you find a hummingbird or are aware of a nest of young birds that may be in trouble, please contact Terry at the following:
If we are not immediately available, leave your name, phone number and a brief message and we will contact you as soon as possible.
Hummingbirds eat nectar from flowers and small insects in the wild. To feed a hummingbird you have found, mix four parts water with one part white sugar and, using an eyedropper, place a few drops on the end of its beak.
Do not mix anything with the sugar water or attempt to feed the hummingbird any other food or insects. Sugar water will sustain the hummingbird temporarily until you can get it to us or another rehabilitation center where it will receive the balanced diet it requires prior to its release back into the wild.
* We operate under South Bay Wildlife Rehabilitation, which is licensed by the State of California and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
DO NOT TAKE DOWN A NEST BEFORE YOU HAVE SPOKEN TO A LICENSED WILDLIFE REHABILITATOR. THE MOTHER WILL STOP SITTING ON THE NEST DURING THE CHICK'S DEVELOPMENT. IF YOU ARE UNCERTAIN ABOUT THE MOTHER'S PRESENCE, PLEASE CALL US.
