And this picture ....
And this picture!
Yep, this is what I awoke to this morning! Actually, the storm woke me up from a dead sleep at 4:00 a.m.; the wind was howling and ice pellets were pounding off the roof. I dozed off and on till 7:00 then got up and looked out the window, yuck!
This site really concerned me ...
Our hummingbirds returned two days ago so I had made up a batch of syrup for them and hung out the feeder but when I saw the snow and the temperature this morning my heart sank, would the poor wee guys be able to endure this weather, would they survive?
Apparently they are much tougher than they look! Mr. Rufous Hummingbird is definitely a little 'puffier' than normal but he was at his station, guarding the feeder and chasing off any other Rufous or Calliope hummer who dared to invade his turf!
Hang in there buddy, this weather can't last much longer .... can it?!
