Last month, Melissa Block spoke with Beloit, Wis., resident Joan Salzberg, who discovered a green-breasted mango hummingbird feeding in her backyard. The bird is rarely, if ever, seen north of Mexico. It had clearly lost its way.
Thanks to a concerted rescue effort — just in time for winter — the little hummer now calls Brookfield Zoo outside Chicago home.
The zoo's curator of birds, Anne Oiler, gives an update.
