Wildlife: Hummingbird

There are many hummingbirds at my house. We go through 6 to 8 feeders a day. This one obliged for a close up.

I had already taken down my hummingbird feeder BUT on seeing a flash of one come to the window I put it back up with sugar water in it. Sure enough, up came this fat little fella. He should have already flown south by now. I understand they really fill-up before flying south for the winter.

I live in Oregon and I saw hummingbirds in January, during snowy weather! I don't know what they were still doing here but I was happy to see him. Didn't think to grab my camera until it was too late.

Thanks for sharing, it is a cute picture. Hummingbirds are one of my favorite birds.

PLease leave you feeders out all winter not all hummingbirds go south for winter!! i took a birding class and got to meet the top and most experienced hummingbird expert at a bird confrence and not all fly south! it was interesting . thats why sometimes you see them and there is snow.

Hummingbirds that are traveling south will stop at a feeder as they travel. Unless you are at the North Pole you very easily could be on a migration route. I wondered about this at one point and realized they may find feeders when they are traveling back North in the spring to get to their birth area.
