Hummingbird Migration

Most birds migrate south for the winter. But this hummingbird flew all the way north from Seal Beach, California, to spend his winter (and all future seasons) at our float cabin on Powell Lake.

When I was in Southern California earlier this month, I played hooky from work and went to the beach. After an afternoon lounging in the sun, I found Up Up & Away Kites up Main Street. And inside, I found this wonderful whirligig. Doesn't he look great in his new British Columbia home? -- Margy


  1. He looks magnificent! I hope he doesn't fly off when the weather gets colder x

  2. There are still hummingbirds here, even with the frosty nights. So unusual!

    I think your whirligig looks stunning...I love the colours. He suits being beside the lake!..xx

  3. What fun for you, Margy!

  5. Thank you to all my friends for stopping by for Camera Critters day. Sadly, Mr. Hummingbird had to come inside just after this picture was taken. Summer ended abruptly and now it is wind and rain. But he's hoping for a rebound and a bit of Indian Summer. - Margy

  6. Very nice photo.

    Regards and best wishes
