    The Anna's hummingbirds stay the year round here. Sometimes, like this year, we get a bit of snow.

    Amazing the ability they have in slowing their heart rate down to near zero and be able to snap out of it.

    If only we humans could learn to survive like these tiny birds do. Kildale what do they do for food when it's so cold and snowy?
