Nature Through My Lens

Winter Hummer


Here’s my pretty little Winter Hummingbird hanging in there against extreem cold weather. Temperatures were at -6 C last night. There’s a couple of them here, keeping warm chasing each other around the yard! They were both eager for their breakfast this morning as the feeder had frozen up overnight.

    • Vickie, thank you! We have a couple of feeders on the go, one outside, and one inside, and swap around as necessary!
