After an unprecedented week of extreme weather, with temperatures below -10C and a snow storm of 35cm, the Anna's Hummingbirds were pushed to the limit. I found this one hiding in a hedge. We've kept the water from freezing as much as possible. As with so many bird photos, the story behind the photo makes for a lasting memory. Happy Holidays to all.

BrianMorin: Believe it or not your situation at the time was a carbon copy of our own, right down the the amount, which fell the day before our Christmas bird count. I hope your little guy makes it through. At this point for him it is all about food.
Chris: Stay safe out there, especially with this latest storm.
