Winter Hummingbirds Part 2

hummingbird, winter, snow

Technically speaking it isn't winter yet but I thought I'd share another photograph of an Anna's hummingbird braving the ice and snow. A couple of days ago I posted about our snow and resident hummingbirds.

The snow is sticking around since it's still close to freezing and the forecast is for possible snow flurries tonight. I feel sorry for these little birds but apparently they're able to tolerate the cold weather alright. I upped the amount of sugar in their nectar though. I still don't understand how they can survive with the lack of flowers and insects to snack on.
