Fastest Things On Wings Rescuing Hummingbirds In Hollywood

Before he collided with a limousine, Gabriel, an Annas hummingbird with head and throat cloaked in iridescent magenta feathers, could spiral hundreds of feet in the air, dive 60 miles per hour in a courtship display, hover, and fly backward. When he arrived in rehab caked in road grime, he was so badly injured that he could barely perch. But Terry Masear, one of the busiest hummingbird rehabilitators in the country, was determined to save this damaged bird. During the five months that Terry worked with Gabriel, she took in 160 orphaned and injured hummingbirds, from a miniature hatchling rescued by a bulldog to Pepper, a female Annas grounded on a film set. In their time together, Pepper and Gabriel formed a special bond and together, with Terrys help, learned to fly again. Woven around Gabriels and Peppers stories are those of other colorful birds in this personal narrative filled with the science and magic surrounding these fascinating creatures. TERRY MASEAR has been rescuing hummingbirds since 2005. Over the past ten years, she and a network of rehabbers in Southern California have rescued 5,000 hummingbirds, the majority of which have been released back into the wild. Terry received her Ph.D. from UCLA, where she teaches English as a Second Language. She has taken time off from teaching to focus on researching and writing about hummingbirds.
