Not That Cold

We feel a tad guilty about our complaints of cold weather. A regular follower of The Squirrel Nutwork told us about a little hummingbird who is out and about getting food in our Virginia weather. Have a look at the photos she shared:

This Rufous Hummingbird continues to come to a feeder in a gazebo at a local horticultural park. That’s a heat lamp to keep the nectar from freezing. We did have a mild fall, but why would a bird that regularly migrates south stick around?

No fur, can you imagine? It’s nice these humans are sticking with feeding this persistent bird. We hope everyone else who stocked a birdfeeding station in the fall has kept up, too! Thanks for helping us out!


Drop us a nut to find!
