Subject: [LABIRD-L] Hummingbirds used in voodoo
Labirders: this story is disturbing. I just read the article in Nat Geo and
was very upset. Probably Nancy Newfield and Dave Patton and other hummer
specialists knew about hummingbirds used as amulets and in potions but I
was not aware of it. ...and just when I was thinking people were getting
more attuned to the needs of birds......:-(
