looking chilly though, I guess you have put lots of 'nectar ' out for it and its friends. Don't tend to think of hummingbirds and snow in the same breath.

How beautiful to have Hummingbirds around Klahani. Do you feed him?

Thank you for all your comments. I love them.

We do feed them all year round with sugary nectar.
I estimate we have somewhere between 30-40 in our house vicinity. It is hard to count them because they move like a bullet. We treat them like our pets.
The one in the picture is male Anna's hummingbird. They stay all winter and later in the spring we get Rufous hummingbirds as well. They are smaller and migrate to south for winter.

Beautiful Hummingbird! Like others I thought they all migrated south in the autumn & didn't return to the spring!

How can this not brighten your day to see this fella in your window. He doesn't seem bothered by the cold. Does he have other food source beside your feeding station? You are very fortunate to have these guys. I can stare at them all day and never get any work done. lol!

They do not seem to be bothered by little bit of snow Bathgate. We have big viburnum blooming all winter by our deck which they go to but I think they prefer our syrup.
They eat small bugs and like to snack on tree's sap. We have a fairly large and dense weeping tree on the corner just by all the feeders which they call home and a evergreen camellia by the door where they hide from bed elements.
They just live and socialize here.....I don't think they venture outside our property.
