9 AM: Frozen.

11 AM: thawing, slightly.

Not fast enough for the Paulik Park Anna's Hummingbird.

Nice of him to pose on the holly, but he wouldn't turn his gorget into the light.

He'd be more cooperative if you warmed up his food in the morning. Or brought it inside overnight.

As it is, you're just lucky he didn't moon you.

WW: Eventually he did.

Shouldn't that poor hummingbird have left long ago, to a warmer climate? But what a nice photo, nicely framed by the holly branches. If I didn't know better, I'd suspect a Photoshop job.

Lily, Anna's Hummingbirds don't migrate. Rufous Hummingbirds are gone from here by late summer.
