Baby it's cold outside!

Here's Gloria at the feeder, her feathers all puffed up to keep her warm. She spent the entire day at the feeder or on a branch beside the feeder.

we are expecting record cold tonight - a wind storm will drop temperatures to a wind chill factor of -19!

Another female hummingbird tried to feed at the feeder, and Gloria chased her away. I will try setting up a second feeder at another window, and see if I can help the second little hummingbird through the winter.

Keep warm everyone!


  1. Oh Sue, Now I am going to worry about little Gloria all is so very cold outside :-(

  2. awwwwe, what a cute little bird ... take good care of them Sue ... they need ya!

  3. Gloria is fine, she was at the feeder not two minutes after I put it up at 7am this morning.

  4. Ahhhhhh! So precious Sue. I'm so glad you're taking care of these darling little birds. 9 times?! Wow! She patiently waited for you because she knew you'd be back. You have such a kind heart! Hugs!

  5. Hey Sue my dear, what a wonderful picture, the hearty little bird braving the elements for sustenance and friendship, When little creatures occasionally take to me up at the cabin, I always seem to associate them with angels, people of the past coming back to have a look around and see whats new. I am sure your little likes what he or she saw, big hugs.
