Wildlife in the Accurate Automotive Service Department

Periodically wildlife and birds, especially hummingbirds, will fly into Accurate Automotive Auto Repair area when the Shop doors are open.

The big problem with this is that the birds then fly up to the ceiling, which is 33 feet above where we service and repair our customers Honda and Acura Automobiles. Once they fly up there, they do not have the sense or vision to fly down to see that there are 8 bay doors that are 14 feet high that they can exit the shop area through.

In the past 3 or 4 weeks, we have found 2 hummingbirds that had died overnight. As you probably know, hummingbirds have a very high metabolism and they must feed frequently. Last night we had our third hummingbird in the shop. He was flying around the top of the ceiling and would not come down.

We went and obtained a hummingbird feeder and some nectar and then hung the feeder about 20 feet off the ground. He flew all around the feeder but never ate. This hummingbird was in the shop for over 18 hours before finally coming down. We found him at the base of one of the bay doors, and almost dead.

Quickly, we mixed some more of the nectar in a small glass and began to spoon feed him. Check out the pictures below. You can see that in the first picture, the birds eyes are still closed…he was very weak. After about 20 minutes, the sugar water was working well.

After about 30 minutes, he was ready to go and we set him free…..Another satisfied customer from the Accurate Automotive Service Department.
