It started with a fury overnight – tiny flakes of ice blown sideways.
It’s falling still – larger and softer – more gently but determined – blanketing everything in white.
The hummingbirds waited patiently while I brought them fresh nectar; I’d forgotten to bring in the feeders last night and the contents were frozen.
I won’t forget tonight.
You finally got it! Nice to see the hummingbirds waiting for their feed.
Best wishes, Pete.
Yes, we got it and I’m happy! Still falling heavily with quite a bit of accumulation so far. I felt bad when I saw the hummingbirds this morning and the feeders frozen up! I had to quickly make up more nectar and get it out there. I’ll do better tonight. 🙂
Looks cold, but I always enjoyed a good snowfall. Up in Port Townsend we generally got one a year and that was about it. My cat hated it. How do yours do?
It’s very cold and we’re getting LOTS of snow! I’m happy but I hope it’s gone in a few days. Tiger wants nothing to do with it. Benji investigated for a few minutes this morning and wanted back in.
I hope you don’t have to go anywhere for a few days!
Nowhere to go that we can’t get to on Zoom!
We’re retired and can enjoy as many snow days as we like! 🙂
Do the hummies stay all year round ? Never saw them in snow before.
Yes. The Anna’s Hummingbirds stay here on the west side of Washington year-around. Mine are at the feeder everyday.
That is amazing – but they are amazing little creatures any way.
I love the hummingbirds!
We had quite a bit of snow. I love it, but my cats aren’t so sure!
I love it too but my cats aren’t so sure either! Tiger says no thanks; Benji ventures out when I do which isn’t much! 🙂
I’ve heard hummers will stay when there is a consistent food source, Susanne! Glad they got their meal. The snow has found its way east as I type this looking out my RV’s window. Hubby spent part of the day putting foam insulation around our trailer. It’s warmer already! We got a big week ahead, tell you all about it soon! Your cat looks very happy with that snow. I know our Brodie loves it!
Yes, I’m happy these Anna’s hummers visit everyday. It’s rare for the feeders to freeze here but I should have expected they would with snow in the forecast. I’m bringing them in at night, and rotating them during the day and they appreciate it! 🙂 I’m happy to hear your hubby got the insulation in for your RV. That should really keep you toasty till you’re into your new home soon! 🙂
I’ve been worried about the birds. This isn’t their kind of weather!
I know what you mean! I’ve tried to keep water available but it freezes up quickly.. I think rain is coming in the Seattle area soon.
We have snow here too and Texas can’t handle it!
Texas has been hit hard! We only had it a couple of days here and after yesterday’s rain, it’s almost gone and feels like spring
We got winter all in one day. It’s in the teens and many don’t have power! I’ll be ready for spring.
