We have 4 small feeders, one near each corner of the house. In cold weather, we just rotate two at a time as needed to thaw. It ends up being less of a hassle than messing with heat sources.

Good morning,

This morning, my husband noticed a female hummer on our door feeder sitting in torpor. When he called me in to check it out, a male came in a she zoomed off so I missed seeing this fascinating occurrence.

Anyone out there doing anything unique to keep their feeders/baths thawed/covered?

Inside looking out,

Caryn / Wedgwood
