“Woke up it was a frosty morning….” sung to the tune of Chelsea Morning by Joni Mitchell.
Coco is not too sure what o make of the frosty car. It makes traveling up the window a little more tricky for her!
So, we had our first taste of winer. A bit early. I dragged all my terra cotta pots under the porch, so they wouldn’t freeze and crack.
Normally at this time, I take down the hummingbird feeder, but we have a straggler that seems to be hanging around! I looked out yesterday morning and he was trying to drink frozen nectar!
I ran outside with a second feeder full of food and switched it out. Luckily we’ve stayed above freezing last night and today. It was around again all day today. It’s a big fluffy rufous, which we don’t see much of at our house. We had ruby throated all summer long.
I’m hoping that he’s just passing through. I don’t want to worry all winter long about trying to keep his food from freezing and worrying about him freezing.
Anyone have a hummingbird over winter in a colder area?
