Winter Hummingbirds

Looks who's still here.  The little bugger.  Two of our three resident hummers are still here, that I've seen, which compared to this time last year, is considerably late.  In 2012, they left in mid-to-late November, only to return in early spring when the weather dipped regularly into the high 50s and low 60s.  Perhaps they will stay all winter this time...

One can surely hope.

If not, dear hummingbird,
would a hummingbird-sized heat lamp
be enticing enough for you to stay?
