[Tweeters] Hummingbird survival in the snow storm

Dave and Jo,

I found a dead hummingbird under my hummingbird feeder during the snow
storm. I am convinced that the dominant male was responsible. The victim
was probably already weakened and couldn't get away fast enough. There
were scuffle impressions in the snow around its body.

Some might be interested in a plug-in hummingbird feeder from Hummer's
Heated Delight which is available on-line. It uses a small bulb (think
old-fashioned Christmas tree light) in the center of the well to keep the
nectar from freezing. It worked perfectly throughout the seven days I
needed it.
