[Tweeters] hummingbirds in the snow

Keep putting out fresh/thawed nectar. Mine were waiting this morning at first light. And when I bring the feeders in to warm they buzz around the window until I put them back out.

They can't go very long without feeding, so they hopefully found another source when you're wasn't available. If those individuals have survived they will likely come a back to your feeder.
