The Hummingbird Whisperer

at

Two years ago, assistant researcher at UCLA’s Earth Planetary and Space Science Program Melanie Barboni from Switzerland installed a hummingbird feeder outside the window of her office.

Since then, she’s collected over 200 new feathered friends and earned herself an on-campus nickname. She sez:

This is cheesy, but I have seen them help people. They make my life happy. Having a crappy day? Who cares — there are hummingbirds around…Having a good day? Hummingbirds make it better. …My dearest dream as a child was to see hummingbirds. Imagine my joy when I found out that my next job assignment would bring me to Los Angeles, where hummingbirds live year-round.
