Small bird in the cold.

Rufous Hummingbird (RUHU), female.
It snowed overnight. Here! In a place it isn't supposed to snow after Valentine's Day. It has melted away now, but it was certainly odd this morning seeing cars driving around Vancouver with 4 inches on their roofs.
To make things worse, the bottom of the hummingbird feeder fell off during the night, so Mama Ruhu shook herself from her torpor only to find an empty bottle hanging uselessly from the tree.
All is fixed now, and the weather is supposed to warm up. Eventually.
