The author describes the birds that she nursed back to health in her home after illness, injury, or abandonment left them unable to live in the wild

Blackwell North Amer
Arnette's winter guests were birds who because of illness or injury were unable to fly south for the winter, or birds that had migrated to the wrong place and needed a winter refuge. Among them were Charlie, a rubythroat who was attacked by a cat; Little Peeper, with a shoulder injury; K-T, the little miracle bird who flew into a window at full speed and survived; Little One, a baby hummingbird who was abandoned when her nest was destroyed; and finally, joining K-T in the sunroom for a winter filled with hummingbird interaction, Crystal and Red, Arnette's third and fourth rufous hummingbirds in three years.
Sooner or later all of Arnette's guests, much to her sorrow, left her to return to their hummingbird wilds. She is happy for them but misses them all.

& Taylor

The author of A Hummingbird in My House offers a close-up look at these tiny but remarkable birds that spend the winter with her, sharing her close-up color photographs and firsthand observations of hummingbirds in the wild. 20,000 first printing.
