Called a bird supply place this morning. We're facing 2 or 3 freezes this week, so I asked about the hummingbird feeder possibly freezing. They suggested having an extra feeder inside and swapping the feeder out if the one outside is frozen at all. That would work...even if the nectar wasn't quite frozen the hummingbirds would appreciate the warmer nectar!

I think that's a good game plan especially since you must be where they over winter. How did it go?

I dunno if your feeder is glass or not and I'm too late to this thread but... if you're getting some really cold weather you might want to bring it in at night. I just lost a glass water bottle that froze solid for 1 of our rabbits. I could just kick myself for that since now I've got to spend $$$ buying another water bottle.

They are still around. So far 26° or so is the worst we've had for a low temp. I have brought the feeder in when it is supposed to get much below freezing...partly because of the glass. Wish I still had the blooms they like, but they seem to do okay with the feeder...and insects.
