Happy Haiga Day!

My friend Kevan Atteberry, who lives in Seattle, posted about his hummingbird feeder freezing in the 29 degree temperature. A lively discussion ensued. Someone left a link that explained that not all hummingbirds migrate! Who knew? Here's hoping the little creatures survive the brutal weather.


  1. i really luv the Zen the awesome simplicity of this haiga so well crafted

    much love..

    P.S. i luv hummingbirds

  2. I know they have them in the summer in NH, but I've only ever seen one! I did, however, see an awesome hummingbird moth last summer! I took a picture of it for the Library's FB page since I saw it in the Library's butterfly garden.
