Hummingbirds in the Wintertime?

Practically every day I see pigeons, crows, seagulls, starlings, robins, chickadees, sparrows.  Closer to the water, there are ducks, geese, eagles, herons and the list goes on. The Seattle Audubon Society says there's over a hundred species of birds that live in the city.  They all have different ways of interacting with humans.

Seattle also has hummingbirds.  Today, one came up to me, noticing me watching it through my bedroom window.  I was in awe as it hovered, investigating me.  I asked what it was doing here in the wintertime.
