An Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) male on a Honeysuckle vine in our yard. Sandwich, add one leaf, one hummer, one leaf!
Our sweet little Anna’s Hummingbird in late December sitting on her branch in a snowstorm. Actually I think she was trying to catch Snowflakes!
Here’s my little friend the winter Hummingbird. Through all the cold and snow, she is still with us. Weighing at less that 5 grams, she’s a brave little girl and I love to see her!
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.

We have several of these guys in the yard, or close to it, right now. I say several because I’ve seen three at one time, but they are so fast it is hard to make distinctions into individuals. They are staying close to our feeders. They need lots of energy to survive this time of the year!
Our Anna’s Hummingbird is still with us. This afternoon it was feeding on the last unopened bud of our Rose of Sharon. We are hoping they will be with us for the winter.
Here we are heading into the second week of October and my little friend the Anna’s Hummingbird is still with us, making his presence felt in our yard! We are hoping they will stay with us for the winter, but only the weather can decide that!
