Here is the freezing weather solution to our resident Hummingbirds food..
It will freeze, unless we keep a lightbulb on it.
So I bundle up and go out at SUNUP...not a minute past, and one or more
show up to get warm and eat a little carbohydrate mixture!
Hummers are VERY territorial birds and this did NOT happen but twice....
"Ruby" is an Anna's Hummer...and he has a flaming red head...I am unable to tell from this pic which he is since it was still pretty dark. Taking photo's in dark and with the lightbulb brightness facing the lens-makes for weird conditions!
I turned around to see our little Manx Elsie cat, enjoying the show as well!
Drink up little hummer!
I have found a neat Web site on Hummers with videos and facts HERE how to enjoy hummingbirds
