HASH(0x8f2bd2b8) étoiles sur 5 Wonderful, touching and amusing. 4 janvier 1999

I loved the book. I love birds and have zebra finches that i allow to fly free in my home. They are entertaining and cute. The book was great. I really enjoy hummingbirds and miss them. I moved to Bend, OR eight years ago and hardly see any. I used to live in the SF Bay Area and hummers are plentiful there. Arnette's book was definately touching and I admire her love for the little birds. My favorite part of the story was her account of how little precious Rosie loved to bathe. I was truly amazed how Arnette was able to provide ample food for Rosie. Her experience with the hummingbirds is a rare life event and something that she'll never forget. Although I was saddened at Rosie's spring release, it was for her best and I can only hope there are more people out there with the resources and love to care for stray or wounded creatures.

HASH(0x8f2bd720) étoiles sur 5 From Squeak to Rosie....More joy. 2 février 1998

She got me hooked on the story of Squeak. Then she slayed me with Rosie. More information, all well researched and documented, very interesting and then the killer....more wonderful photos that make you wish you were there. I can't wait to read her next book. Yes, I'm still feeding my hummers. I'm up to 15 feeders now.
I'm also getting my family into it too.
Thank You Mrs. Heidcamp!
HASH(0x8f2bd69c) étoiles sur 5 I consider each one a treasure and they do not disappoint. Her style of writing seems simple 5 décembre 2014
Par Elaine Campbell - Publié sur

This is the third book I have read by Arnette Heidcamp. I consider each one a treasure and they do not disappoint. Her style of writing seems simple, yet with its cogency, attention to detail (but not too much so as to overwhelm the layman), and warm clarity, it is anything but. She is the finest writer I know of in her genre.

That said, this book is about Rosie, a beautiful rufous hummingbird that gets off course during migration and, from its home in the West, travels a vast distance straight into the yard of the author, who resides with her husband in the mid-Hudson Valley (rather than its “wintering range” in Mexico), a very, very cold place in the winter that is just approaching (Rosie arrived in the fall of 1988).
Ms. Heidcamp does what is instinctive for her and rescues the bird, that spends the long, cold, icy winter in her sunroom relishing flowers specially selected for her visitation, many found in the Western region of the country. Rosie’s habits and way of life is carefully and lovingly documented.

It cannot be said that Rosie doesn’t have personality. She has that quality plus! She is exploratory and adventurous, and is affectionate too, as she bonds closely with her care keeper, the author. The reader learns of her plumage and the changes in it according to the seasons, the various flowers Rosie likes, ignores and which are her favorites. She is an expert flying insect catcher . We learn her sleeping habits and her bathing habits. She is intelligent, can recognize one person from another, and when the author hand-carries her feeder from one place in the room to another spot, Rosie is swift to follow.

Spring that year was an average of seven to ten days late, but it inevitably arrived. Rosie had displayed behaviors denoting it was time for nest building, and her release was bittersweet: happy she had regained her freedom and was saved from winter’s grasp to spend it in a warm and loving environment; sad as the departure of a loved one always is. I admit I had to grab my hanky at the book’s end because not only the author, but the reader, says goodbye as well.

For the bird lover, and hummingbirds especially, this book is a jewel.
