Anna Hummingbirds in Tacoma's Snow Storm!
January 18-19th, 2012

How many of you have seen Hummingbirds in the snow?
Most people associate hummingbirds with sun and flowers.
I have 6 Anna Hummingbirds using my four feeders around my yard.
In the winter, I put up two more feeders as these hummers don't like to share feeders
as I was afraid some might starve.
We had 5-6 inches of snow @ 20-25 degrees.

This male Anna Hummingbird is checking out the ice, probably wonder what the heck it is.

This is my backyard feeder. I have it covered with a heat lamp.

Here are some Hummingbirds & Ice

Here are some other birds that were hanging out in the back yard

And one of three squirrels were hanging too!

We had it all, Snow, Windy, Freezing Rain, Lows 19 to 25 degrees.
Northwest wind 25 to 35 mph. Gusts up to 45 mph.

Amazing! I put the feeders out right before first light and two hummers were already waiting for me!
All 6 hummers survived and are accounted for.
