In a little over an hour, hummer hosts will probably find out how many hummers they have as their chilly hummers descend on feeders. Feeders will probably be the only food source for the next week, so remember to keep them thawed. I mention this only because some of you may be recent converts to winter hummer feeding and may not have ever had to deal with hummingbird feeders vs. extreme Louisiana cold, or may have just spaced out about your feeders as you worry about you plumbing.
Some hosts have figured out ways to keep feeders liquid despite the freeze; I haven't, so I'll be rotating my feeders out if they start to freeze up.
