Thanks for sharing your rescue story and insights! I share your belief in personal responsibility and the maker ethic of trying to make the best of situations with available reasonable resources. There is a lot of satisfaction in diving in to help a situation regardless of the "rules" or the odds of success. Standing by helpless or throwing up our hands because we can't find the right government agencies etc. only diminishes us. Best wishes to you and Nero.

For those inquisitive minds wondering how "Nero", the injured Ruby-Throated Hummingbird is doing...he's doing well!As you may recall, Ken & I found him injured, next to our fence a week ago this past Monday...August 8th. After reaching nothing but dead ends trying to find a wildlife refuge to take him in; I have resorted to being his caretaker. This is not by choice and not for any kudos... I just could not leave him there to die/become a feast for my barn cats or another animal.Nero had/has an injured right wing and cannot fly. He has been an excellent travel companion and is with me in CT! He has a hummingbird feeder and is supplemented several times a day with sugar water, by me.I'm not sure what the outcome will be for Nero. I've done quite a bit of research on line and from what I have gathered, he is at least a year old, has most probably migrated to South America last year and came back, and possibly got injured fighting another male hummingbird!Check out "Nero's short, uneventful video"!Just an FYI... he has shown signs of improvement. When we originally found him, his right wing would not retract. He now retracts it and flutters around a bit, but, can't get lift or flutter much more than a couple of inches. He actually seems excited to hear and see me... I know, this is crazy, but, most of you on here that know me, know I had no choice but to help this little guy out the best I could! If anyone has any contact or knowledge of a wildlife rehab/refuge where I could take Nero to, please let me know!
How to divide the Estate Fairly and Happily
I don’t know about the bugs.It could be the bugs are leftover food, or a parasite or both.options are:Leave everything alone (to nature). This may be very normal.Call in federal wildlife authorities as some commenters tell me I should’ve done.Seek other advice.I would suggest against using any cleaning product or poison or repellant on the birds or the bugs.
I found two baby hummers in a nest but the thing is that the base of their beaks are covered in some kind of bug what do I do please answer ASAP

How a Bike Is Faster Than a Car
Thanks for sharing this informative exercise -- and all the steps needed to make it a great lesson for students, boy/girl scouts -- and everyone!
When I went to school, hydrocarbons broke down to CO2 and H2O (in a perfect world). Where is the weight of water in you experiment? It should be over half the weight of the CO2 emissions. Secondly please check out the emissions pumped out by refineries in California and compare those to the "tar sands", tar sands are cleaner in all respects. Good idea, please recheck your equations and facts.
seems like there are a lot of apparently misinformed comments here, Why are there 26 pounds of stuff when you burn a gallon of petrol? Because thats what happens. The 'C' turns into CO2, the H turns into H2O. H20 isn't significant in the troposphere. Whats the point arguing its abundant somehere down low? CO2 concentrations were higher in the past? yes, millions of years ago. How is that relevant? Try taking look at real current temperature and rainfall data, and then see if you can support the pretence that nothing is going on. because thats

Using a Bike Chain Tool
Our family of 4 siblings just did this and I definitely have comments. We did this while my father is still alive.First, I highly advise that you have either the siblings or a spouse but not both. And have everyone agree on process.Second, I suggest each sibling gets to select one object at the outset and then auction everything else.Third, the idea of family members being nice during an auction might be something some families are capable of, not mine. My brothers bid up objects they didn't even want just for the fun of watching the rest of us lose more money. Be careful!
