Winter Hummer at Feeder


We have had our first snow and freezing temperatures this winter. This morning everything has a coat of ice on it. My first thought was look for our winter hummingbird. I found him puffed up on a branch. I am keeping a close eye on the feeder to make sure it doesn't freeze. So far he is doing fine.
