Winter months are mild in California and local hummingbirds continue to visit frequently. We supplement their daily intake from hanging feeders and enjoy spotting our feathered friends year round. Join in! It’s easy, rewarding and you’ll be surprised how quickly they find your feeders. http://www.hummingbirds.net/feeders.html
