Baby, it's cold outside!!
Like 21 degrees cold.I don't know if you can see it, but just to the left of the red "blossom" on the left side of the feeder is a very puffed up hummingbird who was just sitting there unable to feed properly because it's food is like a slushy. In fact, maybe more solid than that. I did put out a second feeder that is thawed, so they will have liquid food to feast on. The poor little thing was moving it's head back and forth in consternation.
This isn't normal weather for western Washington. This is 'courtesy' of the cold front coming down from Canada through the Frazer valley.
Well, I'm off to do a little Christmas shopping today with my good friend Sheryl. I hope you all are keeping warm, have a hot beverage at hand and can cuddle up with a good book, and maybe a pet or two. Please, if you are having cold weather where you are, bring in your outdoor pets.
Enjoy your day, and mentally thank a veteran for all we have.
