It was only a tease yesterday, the promise of a White Christmas for those who care about such things. But this morning the snow appeared, clothing the evergreens with its beauty and providing joy in the Great Northwest!
I bundle up and venture outside to keep the feeders thawed out and water available for my favorite little birds and they appreciate it.
Temperatures will drop down into the teens this week so the loveliness should stick around. Happy Day! 🙂
Beautiful photos, stay warm!
Thanks so much! I love the snow but mainly venture out for the sake of the birds! 🙂
That’s so sweet of you!
They visit every day. I owe it to them.
I guess the birds would be hard pressed to find food in those conditions. Enjoy the snow and stay warm!
Thanks! 18 degrees here this morning! 😯 I try to keep the feeders full year-round but especially during the winter. I’ll be taking them out soon.
You are welcome to that snow, but I would love to see the hummingbirds feeding.
Best wishes, Pete.
Yes, I know how you feel about snow! 😄❄ I’m bringing the feeders in at night and rotating them during the day as they start to freeze. The hummers appreciate it! 😊
I somehow always associate hummingbirds with warmer climes, perhaps because we don’t have them in the UK
The Anna’s live along the west coast of North America, and expanded their range further north in recent decades. Other hummers migrate south during winter but the Anna’s stay year-round.
Thanks, that’s interesting to know 🙂
I guess you got snow…. and the hummers must be hungry. Terrific photos.
Thanks so much! We got 6 inches at our place and the temps will be in the twenties and thirties all week!
We only had 4 and we’ll have pretty much the same temps as you, but no doubt a couple degrees warmer. Stay warm.
Thanks! I’m bundling up when I go outside!
Beautiful! I hope the hummingbirds are able to make it through, with your help.
Thank you! Yes, they stay here year-round so hopefully they should be okay even as the temperatures plunge! I did another post today about the Anna’s. They’re remarkable little birds!
That’s a relief; they only live with us during the summer, so I wasn’t sure.
Thank you for sharing beautiful photo of snowing, like it.
Looks beautiful! And always love it when people feed the birds in these colder times. For me it’s no use trying to feed birds. While there are cute birds around, all I’d attract is pigeons and I don’t want them anywhere near, haha!
Thanks so much! I love all the birds that visit my yard but only feed the hummingbirds. And never once had a pigeon! 😊
Lucky you! Pigeons thrive in cities. I’d rather feed blackbirds, sparrows etc. Have never seen a hummingbird in real life. They look so delicate!
We have a lot of trees on our property so we attract many small birds. The hummers are so special. 😊 I mostly see pigeons on the lakes and sound and of course in parking lots where they’re looking for a handout!
