19Days #347 Resident Hummingbird
This tiny guy scolds us if his feeder runs out of food. This photo was taken a couple of years ago and it was extremely cold. The feeders froze. We solved that by hanging the feeder in a protective alcove in the covered part of the deck and wrapping an electric water pipe heater around the glass sides of the feeder. The little guy discovered he could sit on the warm wire to rest. At night he roosted on the sill above the window, close both to the feeder heater and the warmth of the shelter.
The brilliant red head and bright green torso show no signs of color unless there is no sunlight. On this snowy day the sky was very dark and grey, not a glimmer of sun made it through.
Cheers to tiny creatures,
