My little hummingbird is still a regular at my feeders. When I got up this morning, the feeders were frozen. I thawed them out and as I was putting it back outside, I heard the swoosh of the hummingbird behind me. He was at the feeder less than 10 seconds after I put his fender out. With a cold blast in our forecast, I’m hoping they will be okay. I will be switching out feeders during the day to be sure they have food.

How blessed you are Maralee to have that beautiful little bird frequent your feeders 🙂
I’m kind of glad they don’t winter here . . . I’d be worried all the time about them.
But, on the other hand, you get to photograph them year-round.
I’ve been changing out their nectar about every hour. This morning it was 5 degrees and my little hummer was sitting in a tree next to the feeder. I brought out fresh food and he went right to it. I can’t believe what hardy little birds they are.
Hope for the best and a break in the weather. We’re about to have an ice storm, so I worry about the birds here as well. Throwing out extra food and will do so throughout the event.
Last night was supposed to be the coldest and it should start warming up. In fact by this weekend it is supposed to be in the mid 50’s. If they can just make it through the next couple of days.
