Weekly hospital update – Week of February 5

The hospital received 34 animals last week, bringing the total for this year to 178.

We’re into the nesting season for some of our local species (fox squirrels, hummingbirds, band-tail pigeons, great horned owls), so it’s too late to safely prune trees. If you still need to do pruning, you need to look very carefully for nests–squirrel nests are large leafy constructions but hummingbird nests are tiny and camouflaged.
