Pets Hummingbirds
This undated image provided by the Veterinary Center for Birds and Exotics shows Dr. Laurie Hess from Bedford Hills, N.Y., a veterinarian for birds and exotic pets holds an Eclectus parrot, she has treated two hummingbirds, one for an eye ulcer and the other for a beak injury. There are over 325 species of hummingbird in North, Central and South America. Eighteen species visit the United States but only the ruby-throated hummingbird ventures east of the Mississippi. Most migrate south for the winter, but a few, like Anna's, stay year-round in the southwest. (AP Photo/Veterinary Center for Birds and Exotics)
