Anna’s Hummingbirds

feeder right 1 With the cold weather we have had this week, the Anna’s Hummingbirds have been staying close to the feeders. Here are some random images from the last few days, all taken through dirty windows.

  1. John ,

    Thank you so much for creating & maintaining such a beautiful site! I just came across it last night …. my mother-in-law in McMinnville, OR (I’m in Portland) contacted me & mentioned she found two dead (and frozen) hummingbirds laying on her deck below her hummingbird feeder. She claims to maintain it well. Recently, I’ve taken greater notice of our local birds & have concern for our wildlife b/c of the unusually long-lasting & freezing temps.

    Any ideas as to what may have happened to the precious little hummers?

    Thank you,
    Krista

    • Krista,
      It’s just a guess, but it may be that the severe cold we had in early December was just too much for the little guys.
